Though i am going OT here but your assumption is fundamentally flawed.
A simple example is recursive code. Recursion will result in less
lines of code but can also lead to serious problems. Python is an
example of the same. Problems arising due to python main loop resulted
in development of stackless python.


The hidden harmony is better than the obvious!!
