Total source size is a bit tough to estimate (there's a lot of dead
code, possibly as high as 70), but I'd guess about the same or a
little more for the base server (an embarrasment of grotty riches in
the language and VM code I'm afraid, the DB and threading/event
engine are the only really clean bits), and then another 3Gig for
the base DB and other supports (possibly 80% dead code there).

Them's the rolls with experimentation toys.
