He suggested using SyntaxInformation[], which is probably still not 100%
reliable, but much easier than trying to slice apart linear syntax and more
reliable than your function which does not.

Thanks John for the second hint.

I did use SyntaxInformation[], which I did not know about, and it is much 
simpler. I've updated the list of functions in the kernel. The count now 
stands at 1920, up from 1860, since now Functions such as Plus and Minus, 
etc.. are picked up using this method

I am compiling now a complete list of all functions in all of the AddOns 
packages that come with Mathematica 7.0.

I am sure when these functions are counted, the number will go to around 
2,500 functions as was shown in the Wolfram blog. I should have this done by 
tonight and will update the table again then.

I am guessing, after viewing Wolfram very interesting presentation given at 
International Mathematica User Conference 2009 talking about the next 
release of Mathematica, that this number could reach 3,500 functions?
