Awesome Idea
When I was in grad school not so long ago, standards were still changing regarding how to handle even simple tech citations, such as websites and digital media. Had I wanted to write an essay that involved heavy analysis of code (and I can think of reasons that might have been interesting), I can only imagine how clumsy and unwieldy the result would have been, lacking as I would have been in standards and resources for doing so. The better we enable scholars and other interested parties to discuss and analyze code, the better off we'll be.

Great Step Forward
I find this to be a great step forward.  Programmers and their code are solving problems with modern, technical solutions.  These solutions to realworld problems should be able to be wuoted and referenced in a similar fashion as testimonies or research articles in medical magazines.  I have can see Node.js becoming a language that will be referenced as well as its poential for large-scale solutions is great.
