The board does not care I am sure. I am going for short and sweet here but
I think we had talked about a timing component and someone pointed out that
there was an old entire project at Apache that basically already did that

Feel free to provide such stats ;-) But we all know how valuable LOC stats
are... While those [1] numbers are fun, they tell you nothing of the kind
