Not being a module developer, I can't comment on details but I feel that
cpanrating is trying to plug a need. But it might not be plugging this
need very well.
There is a lot of good stuff on CPAN, a lot of moderate stuff and some
crap. THere seems to be a need whereby less knowledgeable people can
download stuff with confidence that it is reasonably well going to do
what it sets out to do.
Just noticed the added n in rantings :-)
