I did a quick search and was not able to find anything in the tracker so I am creating this one in the hopes that it is not a duplicate. There has been talk since 1.7 of including Andreas Grabs feedback module into Moodle core (http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=27556#287226). Now that 1.8 has officially been released I would like to encourage that it be added to head as part of Moodle core so that it can be worked on for inclusion with 1.9.
I have set the priority to major because I believe the functionality to get feedback from users about a variety of course issues. Getting feedback about various elements of the course seems to be a crucial part of the social constructivist approach to learning. In situations where a combined approach (classroom and virtual) learning is taking place, the feedback module is great for course evaluations. Being able to have students evaluate the effectiveness of courses and course materials is essential to improving the course.
