Counting your collection question..

I am sure this is a stupid question so I apologize in advance, but when you count the # of DVD's in your collection..do you count a bonus materials DVD as (1)? Like if Scarface is 2-Disc is it 2 DVD's in your collection or 1, I count as 1 for the movie itself, but just wondering. And Alien Quad set..I count as 4, given only 4 movies. Just wondering if there is an unwritten law or anything like that. Thanks for help.

Scott, there's no uniform method for counting. Your approach is what I do as well, though then I speak in terms of number of titles rather than DVDs.
