I honestly see no benefit in any sort of ratings
system. The code is free and easy to peruse. If
it is not easy, and lacks documentation, throw
it away and try another module with similar
functionality if available. Rinse. Repeat.
Other than that, I would say in order the
important attributes for choosing a module are:
It does what you want (duh)
You like it
It isn't overboard for the job
You've heard of it / Other people like it
perl -pew "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"
