This example is only really annoying because the items were almost full sentences. I prefer small 2-3 word functions.

But really, like pmichaud said, I'd rather support this than, say, reverse engineer Google Analytics code http://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js

Obviously the Google Analytics people didn't actually write that terrible mess. They used code compression software to obfuscate it and reduce its size.

But seriously, two to three word functions and variables aren't bad. Technically though C++ variables have a max size of 255 characters. At least that is what I seem to remember. Am I right?
