3.3.2. Programming metrics

Because projects and management styles differ, and any notion of software metrics is new enough to be classed a black art rather than a science, interscript shall support user programmable metrics. Just as programmers can use the Python scripting engine to generate code or documentation, in accordance with their needs, so too can new software metrics be devised and programmed.

For this reason, interscript shall provide a basic statistical analysis package. In addition, apart from standard metrics, interscript shall provide hooks for gleaning other data required for computation of these new metrics. [It is not clear at this time how to do this.]
