LOC as a productivity measure.

Who uses LOC as a productivity measure? Does it work? I can see how it works for new software but what about mature software? What about removing functions (i.e. negative LOC), do you count that as a net drain on productivity or is there some standard adjustment given that it is productive coding effort to remove unwanted stuff. What about refactoring into libaries, etc, which could mean a net fall in LOC? What about OO code, does it work for that? Where do babies come from?
