That's quite true, but supervision of such initiative takes a lot of 
testers who
congragate a a selection of 'approved' plug-ins. You then face the issue of
having to review and hammer on any plug-in that an anonymous, obscure 
submits to you.

How about suggesting to the users to uncomment retrival statistics at the
bottom? You can then provide them with a table (a benchmark reference) 
to judge
