I disagree.  The project usage statistics are a simple popularity
contest among sites which report statistics.

There are lots of sites which do not report statistics.  There are
high quality modules which have limited audiences, making them less
popular.  There are even a number of modules which are of poor quality
which have high usage, because they meet a high-demand need, but for
which no one else has written a high-quality module.

Usage statistics are only one approximate measure of good modules.
