Once an actual directory is done I'm sure it will drive far more traffic
to authors than they ever got on their own. (WordPress.org gets millions
of visitors a month. It doesn't link out enough now.)
However the above tool is purely for plugin authors, that's why it's
unlinked anywhere on the site. It doesn't parse anything out of the
plugin so it's actually dumb to everything but the name.
