While I certainly don't think that's a bad idea, I am still a bit concerned 
that this puts too much emphasis on code contributions alone, while the 
bunch of other stuff that seems also very important to me (docs, training, 
helping out users, whatever) might get a bit forgotten. However, that's 
certainly a question of how the "hackers' rating" would be implemented, not 
a conceptual problem.

Yep, I do think that should suffice.

I'd be much in favor of that, too.
