Initial post about older version with lots of info on interlink here: Interlink gtk2 (email and news client, slim Mozilla Thunderbird fork)
Can good coding be seen in a universal way?
Sometimes, it can.
For quite some time now I use interlink, the email reader fork of Mozilla Thunderbird.
When creating the newest version module (again with the deactivated add-ons that I not use put into an external module) I compared the resulting files with the older version.
Et voilà what do I see?
The newer version main module is smaller than the older version! What a neat thing, I know the programmers goal is to improve the code, but seldom one can clearly see the result of good coding by a smaller resulting module for the most recent version.
Here are the sizes:
As always, if someone is interested in the most recent Interlink x86-64 GTK3 module do reply here and I will upload it.

And yes, it is a total coincidence that the date of the older version is exactly one month older than the most recent one. I downloaded the tar.xz and made the module today since today interlink gave me the info about the new version.
