100 lines is probably about the top end just on the basis of how
long it takes to read and comment on. As Kent says the longer
the code the less likely it is to be read thoroughly.

However, If you have a longer program you can put it on a web
site and post a URL and some keen folks might go and read their
way through it, but in that case I'd suggest askling for direct
comments rather than via the list.

NB. These are all my personal thoughts and do not in any way
reflect official list policy!

BUT it probably should be a question in the FAQ...Ed/Mike?
