[Haskell-cafe] Hackage Improvement Ideas

I was thinking of fun little projects people could work on to improve Hackage:
1) Popularity statistics -- like debian's popcon, gives stats on how
many people have which packages from hackage installed
2) Per package ratings and feedback listed on the page for each package
3) A way to mark a package as "should be removed"
4) All the hackage pages should be wiki editable -- for example, the
intro page refers to cabal-install as experimental but I think it's
moved beyond that point but I'm not sure how to edit that sentence.

What else should hackage do?

Who wants to claim one of the above earn some serious karma?
