I have  often talked about this. But I also have NEVER meant for this to be
part of the code/technical infrastructure.

Want your module "golden"?
* address issues in the tracker in a reasonable timeframe
* be ready for the release of Drupal by the RC stage
* add unit testing (simpletest) and/or black box testing (selenium)
* use proper Drupal APIs (theme functions, connect with other modules, etc.)
* make your module kick ass

If you do all of the above, I, personally, will ship you a certificate with
the name of the module and a big gold star on it. Note: may or may not be
legal in some states or jurisdictions.

Also, Derek's work on CVS / Project means we can do per-module revisions. My
initial push for "golden" modules was in fact related to such a concept.
