I only use line numbers as a reference point. I don't really shoot for a specific line count as a project limit/goal, because it simply works differently for everyone. Comments can take space, I write code spaced out nicely (for readability)...many many factors to tie in here. So I just finish the project, then I use the line count as a reference when I decide to increase performance or something, after I've added all of my comments and such.
