Hi Andy, this is not a good reply to well posed question.

You should rather pick only one of those examples, copy/paste a (small)
fragment of it, and write reasoning why length::m makes sense. It's even
possible that while writing this, you will discover yourself that it doesn't
make sense :)

I'm sorry about being harsh ... but - you know small piece of code with
good comments that are ,,on topic'' of length::m is thousands better
than tons of examples without explanation...
