How many have installed it?


It's probably illegal for folks to say.  See
http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/2511.html, section (2)(a)(ii)(B), 
if it's an ordinary criminal warrant, and section (b)(2)(C) of
http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/50/1805.html for wiretaps
under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.  (Btw, both acts 
*require* the government to pay.)
