Specifically not addressing the "should it be on the most wanted list
or not still" question, but:

panda can't really tell if a module is "good", only if it's
installable. Seems like a README in the project repo is a good start
here. (and maybe something similar in the MW list). Or perhaps a
version convention.

I'm sure we can crib some notes from the perl 5 ecosystem here about
determining if a module has quality.

No one is suggesting the ecosystem setup is in a final state; There
will be hiccups like this as we grow.
