Sequence Functions and pcase Macro are recent additions.
Perhaps there is a tendency toward long nodes in an
initial attempt to doc something, with such long nodes
being refactored later.

BTW, `count-lines' counts blank lines too.  Maybe
`scan-info-node-length' or similar could offer counts
of more than just lines (e.g., using optional args).

`count-words-region' offers lines, words, and chars
(interactively, at least).  Each of those gives some
(and a different) indication of the complexity of doc.

Indeed.  And thank you to TTN for recently trying to
improve the `pcase' doc (bug #31311).
