Popularity has been suggested for some time.  I think any new features
should be going into the happs version of Hackage
( http://code.haskell.org/hackage-server
)
Though it seems not to have seen patches in recent weeks.

It also might interest you to know hackage has a trac:

> What else should hackage do?
Automate HPC, and quickChecks.
Automatic package dep graph.
Decentralize and distributed file serving (packages would need signed).
Package signing.
