Depending on the features of the language (e.g. macros (esp. recursive
macros), templates, generics) the function may be superlinear, depending
on the program content. Obviously, some other features have higher
constant factors than others. As a result, I think that any function you
derive will probably be quite sensitive to the particular feature mix
that is characteristic of the developers of the source you measure.
