Hi Jann,

It depends on the OR. I had a quick look at some of my own ORs: a relay 
with ~5MB/s had an average of 40 open connections to other ORs, and a 
relay with ~20MB/s reported 250. These numbers seem rather stable: 
across all my nodes similar numbers are reported.

That said, these are both exits. The numbers may be different for relays 
that are mainly middle routers or guards.
