"dwm is only a single binary, and its source code is intended to never
exceed 2000 SLOC." (http://dwm.suckless.org/)

$ wc < dwm.c
  2069 6745 52319

First 25 LOC is license and there is some whitespace too, however dwm.c
is obviously somewhere around 2 kSLOC.

1) I wonder if the rule of 2 kSLOC is still valid.
2) Does that mean dwm won't gain any more features?
3) Does that mean the code will be cut short to make place for another
4) Should be the code made smaller by witty constructions or do you
prefer boring and obvious constructions (which are generaly longer)?
5) Will be the limit of 2 kSLOC lifted up?

Thank you for answering and your opinions.
