I think it should be clarified that a class or function with what we would
determine is a high number of lines of code does not mean that its an
indicator of crap code. If you go by line numbers then anyone who places
the opening brace on the next line will have at least 25% more lines than
someone that doesn't. You would also need to take into account if a class
or function has comments in it. In the case of the UIComponent class I'd
say another 25 to 50% are just that. With those taken into account the line
count might be ~ 8000 (just guessing). Nevertheless, the only way to
measure good code is the number of WTFs per minute.

At home 1k or 1k x 50 to 100 instances of interfaces doesnt matter to me
but on mobile or on a client website or mobile app it helps.
