[squid-users] What is a reasonable size for squid.conf?

I am running a non-caching reverse proxy using version 3.3.10.

My squid.conf is currently clocking in 60k lines (not including
comments or blank lines). Combined with the conf files in my conf.d
directory, I have a total of 89k lines in configuration.

I have definitely noticed "-k reconfigure" calls taking on the order
of 20 seconds to run when it used to be less than a couple seconds.
(Same results with "-k test").

I've tried searching for anything related to max lines and similar,
but it usually talks about squid.conf configuration options and not
the file itself.

If this is not documented per se, are there any anecdotal examples
that have this many lines or more? I only see this growing over time.
