I dont think you should be so quick to over-ride that maintainer's
evaluation. It would seem likely that they have looked into it a bit
deeper than the average user. (Maybe weight the maintainers rating)
Also may move to marks out of ten rather than ill-defined garbage...gold.
I would doubt anything under wine merits gold and garbage mean many things
to many ppl.
Using less emotive number ratings allows more objective ratings and finer
granularity (0-10 not 0-3) .
Equally one digit takes up a lot less space than "garbage" and would allow
display of both maintainer and user ratings which is clearly more
