fedora "consumer satisfaction" statistics

Is there any way to rank one's satisfactions with different
components of fedora and the release as a whole?  It would
be really nice if people could express their displeasure or
lack thereof without (or in addition to) sending emails to the
list.  For example, a lot of people bitch about pulseaudio,
networkmanager, and say things like "fedora 11 worst then
ever release".  But I'd like to know statistics on these things
rather than just seeing a random samples of emails that
say "this is broken" and "works for me".

I know one can file bug reports and watch bug reports, but
I'm not sure if there is a way to tell how happy people are
with something.  For example, I might file a bunch of bug
reports against a component even though I'm in general
pretty happy with it.  And I might file a single bug report
against something that doesn't work at all for me
(for me, it's pulseaudio and Intel video).  And I don't file any
bug reports against KDE, which I stopped using when 4.x
was introduced into Fedora because it was so broken at that
time.  I'd like to see a plot versus Fedora release of the user
satisfaction of KDE... I suspect it plummeted with fedora 8
(or whatever release started using 4.x) and isn't back to
where it was before.

On a related topic, is there a way to find per component
statistics on the percentage of bug reports that are
fixed before the next release?
