The numbers are not necessarily unique for each function because
different paths through the code may result in different numbers of
symbols being stored in the table and distribution of chains.  In any
case, the average for unique calls is around 38 symbols, but if we
weight the average by the number of calls made for a given number of
symbols/distribution of chains, the average drops to around 17.  So
there are many calls to functions with just a few symbols.  So maybe
we could at least cut the table size down to 64.
