Was Jeet Kune Do ever a somewhat codified system with a set of common techniques that would be uniform from one school to the next?

YOu can split Bruce Lee's stuff between two seperate terms. His own personal system is considered Jun Fan Kickboxing. That is a bit more codified - for him. It's usually taught as "original" JKD in school's. You also have Jeet Kune Do that should be more research and development for each specific person. Many JKD people did the R&R approach from whatever Dan Inosanto and some others trained in. He continues learning and train even as he is probably in his 70's...a true role model... It's a mixture of Muai Thai, Boxing, Shootboxing, Wing Chun, Heave Filipino MA, Silat and BJJ being a newer addition... Really it could be anything that you enjoy and feel that is practical and can mix with other MA. Read dome stuff on 5 methods of attack, etc

The funny thing is, if you look at the history of martial arts...particularly Chinese MA...almost every style constantly evolved, changed, and grew--because they were actually used as fighting arts. After the late 1800's most styles became stagnant and tradition became more important than usefulness. I suspect the same is true of most other types of martial arts--from European to Asian and everything in between. Hell, even Mas Oyama took what was useful (to him) and discarded the rest...as well as cross-trained in judo. What we think of as "traditional" martial arts are in many cases younger than BJJ or Judo. But to answer the original question, yes and no. If you ask the JKD Concepts folks (Dan Inosanto's camp) they will likely say no, it was meant to be a personal expression of martial art. That's one of the reasons why Bruce Lee stopped teaching publically--he didn't want to teach a specific "style". The "Original JKD" folks will say the opposite.
