After experimenting in many directions, two new goals were introduced. It is clear that less code allows for a more complete understanding of the entire application by an individual and gives a smaller surface area to optimize and secure. A goal was set to keep the application under one megabyte in size.
Response time was also important, so a one millisecond goal was set from the time the request is in place to the time the response is complete and ready for return.
In 2008, with most of the desired functionality in place, both of these goals were accomplished.
