Isn't the number of posts a more reliable indication of "value"?
Then you run into overhead problems. ATS is a big site, with a lot of people and a lot of threads. Think about the tracking involved. That is why the feature was dropped in the first place.
A view count (1 member = 1 view irrespective of the amount of times they re-enter the thread)
I do see what you mean about the programming involved though - it would be tough but not outside S.O ability to address and maintain.

Also consider this. A catchy thread title often attracts more hits than a thread with substance.
