in thread Programming *is* much more than "just writing code".

Yes I could break into a subroutine every 10 to 20 lines, but then I have a different problem -- the code is arguably more fragmented and less easy to follow and has to find other ways to pass around variables. Some sections of logic cannot be broken up without severely hampering readability, or without serious code mangling - but they can be broken into paragraphs with comment headings.

Maybe that's not feasible for your application as it is right now, but the best Smalltalk programmers I know write exceedingly short methods all the time, in almost every language they use.

I don't think that's an accident.
