These guys have been doing this count for a while.

Earlier results for Python:
Potato: 0.66% of ~55MSLOC = 363K
For woody was 1.4% of 105MSLOC = 1.47M
Sarge: 1.8% of 229MSLOC = 4.1M

So growth has slowed down percentage-wise, but sped up in terms of total
code.  What does it mean?

good ground exists; indeed the passion is the measure of the holder's
