That is no surprise to me. If you were to take code written in C and
translate it into COBOL, I'd generally expect the COBOL code to be
longer and harder to maintain, too.
Indeed, I'd expect that for pretty much any pair of languages;
translating code out of the idiom it was written for generally makes it
larger and harder to understand.
