Perhaps I'm missing something, but I can't find a single articulation
of why this feature is actually useful. Can you explain to me:

* What, as a package maintainer, I'm supposed to do in response to a
0/5, or 3/5, or 5/5 rating?
* What, as a user, I'm supposed to do if I see that Django 1.3 scores
0/5, or 3/5, or 5/5?
* What, as a user, I'm supposed to use as a criteria to rate a package?
