Chain/sprocket info needed again...

I know that's what they -say.- Others I've talked to say they get
about 20K out of a chain no matter what they do. I was just wondering
since the main point of chain wear doesn't seem to be the actual point
of contact with the sprockets, but the bushings. The internal lube
eventually wears out, the bushings go, the chain stretches, it's done.
The sprockets.... I doubt a person could tell the difference between
my rear sprocket and a 0-miles one, if I repainted it.
