19. In Canada, we have CFL's for EVERY purpose now
We've got chandelier bulbs (two different kinds), three-ways, "fat alberts", dimmable, floodlights/spotlights, even some that work at -40 degrees.

We've converted our whole house over a period of 6 years. Something like 50 lights.

I don't know why you don't have these in the US.
