If you need just stats (without drilling down into code to interpret
those stats), you might package up your stat-generation code and hand it
out on c.l.p. That way, I and many others could run it against our
proprietary code and just give you results without exposing source code.
Might be a way to get a broader range of results--most of the "big
projects" in the wild are frameworks, not apps.
