[PyKDE] PyKDE Factoids

In looking for DCOP-enabled KDE apps tonight, I ran across cxxmetric in 
kde3/bin, which will compute the number of code lines/comments/blank lines in 
a set of h/cpp files.

Running it on PyKDE shows a little over 1.25 million lines of C++ code. That's 
excluding comments or blank lines. There's some duplication of h files in the 
various module subdirectories and extra/, but I'd guess that still puts PyKDE 
over 1 million LOC (and there are more modules coming)

Those are mostly generated automatically by sip of course - I doubt the amount 
of actual written lines of C++ code is more that a few thousand lines. PyKDE 
binds about 700 classes and over 10,000 methods..

Now you know why it takes so long to compile.
