I dunno, I kind of like the floating-point idea. You could even write a style-comparison metric which would treat a style block as a point in n-dimensional space, and measure the distance between two hackers' styles in the standard Pythagorean way.

Hell, you could even incorporate that into interviews if you were hiring people, to make sure you never hired someone whose style was radically different to your own ... any takers? ;-)
