User Reviews In Synaptic?

The popularity system is really broken. :-)
Perhaps it could be fixed but I really don't know how...
Right now, all Ubuntu default apps have 4, some apps have 3, most Kubuntu
apps have 2, and then the rest have 1.

Take Inkscape for example, 17:th best rated on GnomeFiles with a score of
9.05, has popularity 1 in Ubuntu.
Not everyone needs a vector graphics tool, but people who does think it's

So the problem is that everyone rates all programs by either having them
installed or not.
Voting would instead let people who have tried something give a vote, and
that would be meaningful!
