FWIW, I think that a page's rating average ought to be a {$Rating}
page variable, not a directive.  :-)  That way one can easily
do {OtherPage$Rating} and use it in pagelists.

Also, to be consistent with other directives, we should use
(:rating 1:), (:rating 2:), etc.  That's assuming that a directive
is used at all -- I still prefer "Rating:5" or "Rating:*****" as markups.
