maximum number items on main menu

What is your maximum number of items (installed modules) on your main menu? What is your average per client/site?
Would you consider 10 items on the main menu a high number? I'm looking for an average, I know there are exceptions with a LOT, but I'm more interested in what the majority is using.
The reason I'm asking is because of a new theme I'm designing.
Thanks for any help.

Re: maximum number items on main menu

It depends on the site. Most people will have something from 5 to 10, larger sites up to 20.
This are the main menu points.
When you select a module eg News, you can have a listing of the categories as additional submenu links inside the menu links. For News, this can be 10-20 items, for a catads module up to 50.
