can you provide some kind of "concept" or a mock-up interface to this XML-RPC server.

for starters there should be a priority 0 bunch that should include the most used stuff like: Gnome, Synaptic, Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice, Evolution, Gaim, XMMS, Gimp, Inkscape (the order is arbitrary).... I almost forgot... maybe the Ubuntu Installer should have like the highest priority.

For the rest you could implement some kind of voting system altho this might be abused.
