The Toolbox displays only modules that have been endorsed by at least
one critic. Over 600 unendorsed modules remain invisible unless you are
logged in.

Unfortunately many worthwhile modules are not even unendorsed.
For example, the praiseworthy "split" has not made it to the Toolbox (yet?).

So I'd say: if it is endorsed in the Toolbox, it's probably good; if it is
unendorsed, it might not be all that good; if it is missing, no conclusion
is possible.
