Gah, don't use compounded negatives in English, they're horribly

I'm not personally aware of any projects over 200k lines and 10
full-time developers that aren't a total train wreck. Language doesn't
matter. Letting a project get that large in the first place is a hefty
hint that you've gone way off the rails, and it should probably be
split up. (Unless you start stretching the definition of "project" to
something like "Debian", which doesn't count)
