We've been kicking around variations of that idea already.

As I mentioned in the core discussion, I'm a bit concerned that this
would have the effect of choking off development too soon.  We could
have a situation where nothing major is supposed to be getting worked
on from Nov 15 to mid-May, which seems much too long.  So "very small"
seems too strict.  Robert's suggestion of a 1000-line cutoff might be
workable though.
