Looks pretty solid.  A few points to consider:

1. What Brady said is true--you'll want to create a general function 
that takes a $class_id parameter.  If you need to preserve the names of 
the functions, you can do something like

function showcount_display_farm() {
  return showcount_display_class(3);

2. The code $config[table_prefix_no_lang] should probably be 
$config['table_prefix_no_lang'].  The former looks for a constant named 
table_prefix_no_lang, and, if not found, accesses the key of that name 
in the $config array.
