Actually, no.  I *like* your idea of bundles for closed contribs.  The 
ratings I was thinking for the other modules (because there is many, and 
not always good quality).  If there is a selection of good quality 
modules that all work together, there is no need for rating system, just 
good descriptions of what they do, and being well organised.

Yes, good idea

One thing, sandbox is not very visible, maybe there could be another 
place that contributors can publish working modules, even if they are 
not 'approved'.

I think more control at the top level is needed, how it should work - 
I'm not so sure what's best - maybe other people will give some good ideas.

Yes, could be good.  Apart from amazon and image, what else should be 
grouped, and how?
