I disagree. I don't think the initial number of lines of code is a good
indicator of anything (and also, it's not just 3 lines in this case, but
rather 3 lines plus an entire file, right?). In my opinion, a better
measure is whether or not the code is written in a way that is generically
useful. If it can be meaningfully used by a variety of sites without them
needing to edit the code, then posting it as a module makes sense. Modules
are accessible to a much broader audience than PHP snippets are.
However, in this case, if I understand the description correctly, it sounds
like it might have a lot in common with an existing project (
http://drupal.org/project/compact_forms)? If so, then you should contribute
your work to that project rather than starting a new one.
