For my own code I use the Microsoft LOC counter which does have a bunch of configuration settings for what to take into account but they're unfortunately buried in a hideous Regex based XML format config file so I use the defaults on the grounds that anything else is unlikely to be comparable with anyone else using the same software. It took 17 attempts to even get the thing to install it's so flaky so if anyone can suggest a better alternative I'd certainly be interested.

My observation on the 250,000 line critical point in the history of Open Source projects comes from looking at stats on http://www.ohloh.net/[^] . They have their own counting standards which means my 250,000 isn't going to be the same as their 250,000 but the observation holds that comparing Ohloh counted projects with Ohloh counted projects 250,000 LOC seems to be a critical point for major project restructuring, suspension, permanent branching of projects due to teams splitting up and other highly disruptive events that show up as trend changes in their stats.
