[BiO BB] NCBI NR size history

I had some data collected on the number of protein sequences in NR
between May 2000 to May 2003, and it's shown in Figure 2 of this New
Generation Computing paper. Unfortunately I can't find the raw numbers,
and don't have anything more recent after that.
If someone had periodically downloaded NR, and kept an archive of the
major releases, one can probably do a quick count from that. I know we
haven't kept a record of it except for the most recent version.
