Can I guarantee that txids will only ever occur once or twice in listtransactions? IIRC I cannot, right? (because you can split payments or something- not too clear on this).

Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a transaction fee.

It is possible to generate transactions that "fan out" to an arbitrary number of recipients.

They're non-standard transactions right now, so they won't be relayed or included in blocks.  But you should probably assume that they will be possible in the future (and a miner could, of course, include them in their own blocks now).

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
