Well, I can "write" 100KSLOC simply by writing:

with Claw.Frame_Window, Claw.Dialogs.Modal;

(Claw is distributed as source code, and contains over 137KSLOC. :-)
And that all is well commented, working Ada 95 code.

Slightly more seriously, I probably could generate 10kSLOC with CBuild (the
Claw application builder) in a 12 hour day. And that also would all be
working, readable, commented, Ada 95 source code. That would make a good GUI
for a Windows program. But actually writing the application to do something
after the menus were pulled down and the dialogs popped up would take
somewhat more time...
