That comment was in response - and directly related - to Jeff's idea
regarding revising the plugin "Works/Broken" system (or adding an
Amazon-style rating/commenting system) on Extend. I don't see it as
conflicting with the suggestion to develop a set of best-practices
guidelines. I suggested to wait on coming up with ideas to change/replace
the "Works/Broken"  tool on Extend, *not* to wait on creating best-practices
guidelines or to wait on implementing some form of peer review.

In fact, I'll jump right in line, as soon as such peer-review is available.
So, the sooner it happens, the better!
