by a quick calculation, that is 1.65 million lines of code.  Don't know
about how many might be comments???

That is not a lot, since each line of code generally compiles to about
12 bytes in C or C++ from my experience, so that would be about 18=20M
of binary... IF there are no comments.  That would be about 5% of the
code if no comments are included.  Not much is it?
