[seqfan] Average number of terms in %S, T, U lines

Most keyword:cons sequences consist of single digit terms (e.g., 1, 6, 1,
8, 0, 3, 3, 9, etc.) and they tend to have a little over a hundred terms
shown in the main entry. But of course that is not the only kind of
sequence in the OEIS. There are also sequences that start out with very
small terms and literally grow exponentially large, sequences with "random"
growth, sequences of mostly larger numbers (and consequently fewer terms
shown without recourse to a B-file), etc.

So I'm wondering: what is the average number of terms shown in OEIS
sequence entries? (Cutting off the sample at say, A200000 should not
produce a significantly different answer, I would imagine).
