What Percentage of Genes are Alternately Spliced (or how many)?

	Does anybody have any data or even a good guess on this subject?  
How many characterized genes are known to be alternately spliced?  This 
out of how many characterized genes?  I guess I am most interested in 
human, but will be fascinated by data from any organism.  Any bets on 
what percentage of human genes will be shown to be alternately spliced 
once we get done with this whole genome thing?  And what will be the 
average/range/distribution of the number of differently spliced products 
from a single gene?

	Thanks in advance for any replies.
