In any case, isn't there something like this already?

I don't see much benefit in building a "crude" prototype for such a system. If it is going to be done the person should really run with the idea; research what tools are out their for managing a system and doing what it takes to make a usable, friendly, and meaningful implementation. Modifications to analysis tools could be made which would crawl public repositories looking for known patterns (not to claim it is a bug), similar to Ohloh and its crawling tools.
