Besides the reviews, smoke tests, manpage comments, bug reports, and googling
for the articles written about a module, what ELSE do you want?

If you're asking for a moderated CPAN, are you prepared to be the first
full-time volunteer to vet the 30 modules per day submitted to the CPAN?

Really - I don't know what *else* we can add.  Experts have published their
opinions... ANYONE can publish a score or a review or manpage note or bug
report easily through the existing tools.

What ELSE do you want for free?
