Just to set your data straight:
wc -l $(find kdelibs -name *.cpp -or -name *.h -or -name *.c)

So its probably not even 1 million sloc after removing
comments/whitespace in kdelibs. That doesn't mean of course that using
kdelibs requires building a ton of things. 


You will remember something that you should not have forgotten.
