If you use those three lines of code in hundreds of places as you suggest,
it would be a very good idea to put it in a procedure or function. It's not
the number of lines of code you should use in deciding whether to modularize
the code, but instead the number of times they are repeated in the program.
I feel that even twice is good enough to mudularize...
