Who knows programming, knows that comments and blank lines are all part of the code, there cannot be too many, for code to be readable. So even there, complexity matters. The number of lines of code is a measure of complexity of the code, considering that the code is well written. And is not obfuscated, in kiss_sdl it isn't. It is some measure, yet not the only measure of complexity. Yet it matters when the code has to be easily changeable, when the code is too long, it is not easily understandable, and also not easily changeable.

The details like placement of { depend on the coding style. In C code the good style is Kernighan & Ritchie coding style, or the Linux kernel coding style, which comes from this, i think many agree. This also somewhat determines the number of comments.

I think it can be argued endlessly whether the number of lines of code matters, or doesn't matter at all. But i think the bottom line is, it still somewhat matters. And more generally, complexity matters.
