As far as I'm concerned, I'd say that if you didn't feel anything wrong
nor spot any problem so far working on a 150 klocs project, there's just
no need to worry. FWIW, a C# port would probably requires *way* much
than 150 klocs.

Doing a quick count using wc -l (so the following numbers include
comments and blank lines), Zope 2.8 is about 418 klocs, Plone 3 about
259 klocs. Which, for the full stack, makes about 677 klocs. Even if you
estimate a 50/50 ratio between real locs and comments/blank lines, this
still makes something like 338 klocs.
Is that enough ?-)
