Another nice understatement.

A big reason for this behavior is the difficulty, for the average 
manager, of measuring the quality of programmers, and of programming 
efforts.  One observation that's been blogged about is "when deep 
quality metrics are unavailable, customers will base their decisions on 
shallow metrics instead" (see [1] for links).

I know!  We can count lines of code...
