I understand, and partially agree.  Being too strict with coding styles
is bad.  Publishing metrics does not:
- Force anyone to code in any style
- Point fingers at anyone (the author names are not visible, the source
code is not linked)

What it does do is:
- Make our project seem a bit more mature and open
- Give us a handy reference for what to improve as the code base matures

What I would probably do is run the metrics locally and put them under
some URL on my account at, and let you know.  We can see if
they're useful at all at that point without publishing them to the whole
