Very interesting. I have a Nexus 4 and a Nexus 7. What would the benfit of using that ROM on my phone or tablet be? Aesthetics? speed?

Both, generally those are the main things the devs aim for, along with removing bloatware and improving stability etc
XDA Forums is a great place for custom ROMs
I think +pat already has the newest and best functionality from his devices, as they're recently released by Google with the newest available software.
Of course there are some bugs, but the dev community has nothing better for him at the moment, unless he wants to root his device.
Anyway, as he does not even know that rom is, I don't think he can benefit from that at this moment.
Also, I have a Galaxy Note 2 and Samsung has done a great job with software now, very sophisticated and closed, and it is getting harder for the dev community to improve that, competing with a huge company with billions to invest and resources to offer, compared to a group of independent devs.
I'm not really dismissing the indie dev community, but it is just that I feel they are losing appeal ATM.
