Look in _Read Me First: A Style Guide for the Computer Industry_ by Sun
Technical Publications, (ISBN 0-13-455347-0), p. 199. It gives the
following metrics a series of estimates for the time it takes to do
various things in the writing process. (I'm assuming, by the way, that
these are the types of metrics you're talking about.)

As always, your mileage may vary, blah, blah, blah
