Useless thread about some useless statistics

I recently came across the program 'sloccount' that attempts to
calculate the time and money that went into writing software.

If ran on the source code of python 2.5 the results are the following:

Total Physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC) = 689,996
Development Effort Estimate, Person-Years = 191.35
Estimated Average Number of Developers = 48.52
Total Estimated Cost to Develop = $ 25,848,213
Please credit this data as "generated using David A. Wheeler's 'SLOCCount'."

I'm wondering if the person-years and estimated average number of
developers numbers are accurate or not - not that it's of any
importance, just wondering. And about the 25 million dollars total
price tag, well, ummmmm
