What kind of bloat are we talking about?

Functionality Bloat or Code Bloat. It's two different things and Functionality Bloat does not equal Code Bloat.

You can easily write an application with little functionality in a lot of code, and you can just as easily write an application with a lot of functionality in a lot less of code.

I don't mind Functionality Bloat as long as it doesn't result in Code Bloat. Code Bloat is what makes applications start slower, react slower etc.

Functionality Bloat "just" means you can't find the functionality you need - unless you search within the application for 30 minutes ;)
