It just dilutes what we're trying to establish here: do people want
ratings on PyPI? Yes or no?
For me, ratings belong elsewhere. As I've already stated in this thread,
I believe user ratings, wherever they are, encourage lazy package
picking rather than proper research by users new and experienced, which
is what we *should* be encouraging.
