>>I doubt that very much.  IBM's method for determining programmer productivity
 is
 not a strict count but also involves a factor (can't recall what it's called)
 that normalizes the count based on the "power" of the language.>>

I thought they used something called "Function point analysis". This technique 
"weighs" programs based upon complexity, number of files, number of functions 
provided by the program, etc. and comes up with a number that can be used to 
determine how long it should take to  do any work.
