One crazy thought: let's use the Cheeseshop.

When I search for 'ipaddr' I get three hits, with Google's module at  
the top with a score of '8'.  I really don't know what that means but  
I'm guessing it means that module is "two times better" than the next  
highest score of 4 for ipaddresslib.

It would be really nice if say the Cheeseshop had a voting feature.   
Use PEP 10 voting to get a rough estimate of a module's popularity  
(download counts alone might not tell you everything).  Then at least  
you can get a rough idea of how generally popular a module is in the  
wider community.  Also, a module should have to live on its own two  
feet for while on Cheeseshop before being considered for inclusion in  
the stdlib.
