Comment (by dd32):

 No, we won't be adding overall rankings, although it'd be technically
 possible to.

 A rank doesn't offer an end-user anything which means anything, `Ranked
 #34,125 of all plugins` is not helpful to a user, especially when that
 plugin is rated 5 stars, does exactly what the user wants, and is actively
 being developed.

 Rankings also encourage people to "one up" another plugin, and that's not
 what builds a good community.
