That would be unreliable, not bloated.

Bloated could mean a number of things, roughly: Does too many things,
links to too many libraries, takes up too much memory, disk space or
possibly CPU time for what it does. Pretty much always a value
judgement at some level. Clearly all interrelated, but nothing
(directly) to do with unreliable. Doing a lot without good enough QC
could lead to unreliability, but it doesn't have to. And code can be
unreliable while being very tight and compact - though it should
decrease the likelihood.
