At one point, I had three sets of them on my key ring in my pocket. To this day, they were some of the smallest car keys I ever carried - not the giant remote-control monstrosities that "modern" car keys are.
GM issues one key that operates the doors and trunk, and a second key for the ignition, despite research indicating that customers prefer a single key.
