I have no idea. I just meant that if anyone deserves to be cooked meals
because of Pd related things, then it's Miller.

Total Physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC)                = 93,652
Development Effort Estimate, Person-Years (Person-Months) = 23.50
 (Basic COCOMO model, Person-Months = 2.4 * (KSLOC**1.05))
Schedule Estimate, Years (Months)                         = 1.78
 (Basic COCOMO model, Months = 2.5 * (person-months**0.38))
Estimated Average Number of Developers (Effort/Schedule)  = 13.22
Total Estimated Cost to Develop                           = $ 3,174,933
 (average salary = $56,286/year, overhead = 2.40).

That is a lot of lines of source code (only 25,000 of them are
portaudio/portmidi). Pretty sure that 13.22 people didn't write the
majority of the Pd code. :)

Good idea. Sorry for my presumption.
