A lot of people like the idea of publishing cpan download
stats to use popularity as a guide to quality.

It does not seem likely that that data to be made available
any time soon:


  "Does CPAN provide download statistics for authors?

  "No we don't. http://xxx.lanl.gov/help/faq/statfaq sums up our
  thoughts on the matter quite well."
