Mabye we can take the opportunity to fix the term "Drupal developer". In 
my book a Drupal developer is somebody who contributes patches to Drupal 
core on a more or less regular basis. Assuming that definition we maybe 
have 20 developers.

People who develop their own modules and put them in Drupal's contrib 
CVS are module developers. Likewise for people contributing themes.

The other people you mention are just some users. Yes, users. They use 
Drupal in one of the many ways it can be used.
