Kind of fun :) Firefox would set you back $786,698 if you hired a team  
to write it from scratch... :p At Ericsson they had a metric saying  
that any estimate should be multiplied by 3,5 to get a correct quote  
(they found that projects tend to cost on average 2,7 times more than  
the initial estimate). I wonder what the ohloh metric would be.

Oh, and the Zope 3 I found only had 11,818 LOC. So I guess there is a  
cheap option out there... :)
