People will not use it unless they can *really* trust a module. Simply
expecting people to migrate to it because of the theoretical
benefits isn't quite wise, until it has proven itself. The idea is
to make it easier for people to have access to a module, use it
and test it. More exposure means more feedback and more bug-fixes
(hopefully :) ). But simply "being there" isn't enough to
expect world-wide usage, but "being there" is enough to hope
that people have easier access to play around with it.
