That's roughly 3% of the users with a recorded preference. And if the
'rich_editing' meta_key isn't there for all users, 3% is actually a high
estimate for the whole user base.

Just for fun, I did an inner join on that second result set with: 

"SELECT * FROM `wp_usermeta` WHERE `meta_key` = 'the_meaning_of_rich_text'
AND `a_clue` = 'true'"

And got "No result returned".
