How common are the so-called "prophetic perfects" in the Psalms?

Waltke&O'Connor and GKC don't give examples from Psalms, and I don't have
Diethelm Michel's study on tenses in the Psalms with me today.

E. Puech wants to take the perfect verbs of salvation in the Hodayot as
prophetic perfects. I'm trying to determine how unusual this would be.
