[development] Rating module quality

Not having looked at the voting api... is it merely a rating module or does it have the ability to have the users comments with their vote?  Also, assuming that these votes are tied to a user account, do these votes/comments reflect account status?  Example, Bob really likes module B and creates several accounts to mess with the results, bob's accounts are blocked... does this reflect into the count?  Also, we have more spammers now (not a lot but...) when we block there account can we also delete the comments in the vote (shows up in tracker)?  It would definitly be a vector for spam.  Download.com has this issue at times with their user supplied review/votes...

I think there is value in both voting and # of downloads.

They balance each other and compliment each other so well.

If a module is downloaded a lot, but gets a poor rating, it
will eventually get less downloads.

The number of votes is also important, a module rated 10/10
by 2 people is questionable when compared to a module
that got 7/10 from 120 people.

So, let us go ahead with both of them.
