What is the most lights (actual lights, set to emit light, with or without volumetrics) you've ever used in a scene, and if an obscene number, what was the approximate render time?

Just curious....

I had a night scene a while ago, and it had around 400 lights I think.. just point lights with nominal distance and no shadows, no volumetrics.
Even though they did not have any shadow, it was taking a while to render..

I did in the 400s as well way back for the American Idol open. I used luxigons or whatever they are called to place them. Fprime had no trouble rendering them.
