I cringe whenever I hear "software engineer" particularly when
someone delivers it with a straight face.

there are firm metrics for what is good.

Such as?

I'm familiar with "lines of code" that most every one around code 
uses & is useless.

There's Function Points (FP) which normalizes work done across 
languages (e.g. 200 lines of Assembler is 4 lines of COBOL... crudely), but 
as far as I know has never really caught on.

There's McCabe's Cyclic Complexity (?), but I've never found anyone outside
the Pentagon umbrella who's heard of it, much less used it.

Are we going to have an ontology "metric?"
