My wife Libby, a dispensing audiologist, tells me that most of her patients
who have been fitted with the MultiPro use three or four distinct
programs.  In a few cases, Libby has duplicated a a couple of the programs
at a different amplication level because the MultiPro doesn't have an external
volume adjustment, thus using most of the program slots which are
availible.  The bottom line is that Jeff is right, most of the time
a 4 memory instrument would be sufficent.

btw: there are really only 7 free memories, the 8th is always used for
for electro-magentic pickup (ie telephone).
