I don't think I ever suggested that.

I was being mostly tongue-in-cheek anyways. If you look back on this
list a short while back there was a discussion of json library interface
that I seriously doubt would take 100 lines of code.

Even if it did I would strongly disagree with using a lines of code
metric to judge the value of a library.
