#62: Show the amount of ratings in plugin list

 Plugin list pages such as
 http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=custom%20taxonomy show the
 plugin's rating but not the amount of people who have rated it. The amount
 of ratings is relevant in differentiating reliable well-tested plugins
 from less tested ones. Users might also be more forgiving of a low rating
 for a plugin if there is only a single rating.

 For one example of where this is used, please see
 http://www.amazon.com/s/keywords=wordpress+plugin, where the third result
 I see has ***** (24) and the fourth ***** (2). While the average ratings
 seem equal, the additional information of the amount of ratings can make
 all the difference: the former is far more likely to be well-tested with
 votes from people other than the author's friends, but when one is wanting
 to be among the first who find the next holy grail, the latter is
 obviously the better choice.
