While I don't doubt racket means less lines of code, if I rewrote one of my older c++ projects in c++, I think I could cut down at least half of the code. Maybe more depending on the project. Rewrites have hindsight that you didn't have the first time.

Especially when you throw in going from Xt (!) to Cairo/GTK - you could probably save 50% of the line count right there.
