I've been playing around with this for bardcamp scripts for a bit, and there are some problems that I've not quite been able to resolve:
1) Picking up when people speak is relatively easy. Picking up when they're in a scene and not speaking is quite hard.
2) Picking up when they /leave/ a scene is really really hard. Because you have to cope with "Exit" "Exeunt" and all variations thereof.
Line count is, in general, problematic, though there are online things that can give you that number.
I've not found a way to do it that was less time-consuming and error-prone than a person and a spreadsheet. I'm sure it's possible, though.
