Yep. We've been following Ohloh stats for the Midgard Project for a
while now and they're really nice.

It would. The only problem is that they only allow 1000 (IIRC) API
queries per day while we have 7000+ users to count karma for.

This means we need to split the users we have into some kind of
processing batches.

Anyway, for the different ideas for collecting karma: the karma system
in Midgard has a PHP plug-in API. I've already shown Ferenc how to do
plug-ins but I will also make a doc about it soon so others can help
us to expand the reach of the karma calculations.
