OK, I also just read this snippet from an old interview with O Sensei. He also said:
---------------------------------------
(interviewer): How many techniques are there in Aikido?

O Sensei: There are about 3,000 basic techniques, and each one of them has 16 variations . . . so there are many thousands. Depending on the situation, you create new ones.
---------------------------------------

So I'm assuming that each isn't learned individually, especially based on the last sentence.
