+1 for that. There's a lot of hidden gems in there, but at present tracking
down specifics can be a time consuming process. Placing some extra
responsibility on the developer to maintain their plugin or mark it
abandoned would be a good start - perhaps adding an advanced search
capability would help the end user though? Just a few options where you
could filter out plugins by their compatibility, last date updated, etc.

Plugins that haven't been updated since 2007 probably shouldn't be coming
back very high on the search results.
