RIght. That was a bit of my thought: if the mentors aren't engaged enough
to vote people in, then what are they doing there.(*)

The basic concept can certainly be fiddled with. I see a couple ways:
increased mentor count for the bootstrap work, and/or maybe set the initial
list at (5) rather than (0).

But back to (*), the mentors may only be there for *community*
development/education. As stated elsethread, such mentors may not be
properly equipped to evaluate merit for committership. That's a fair point
which I had not considered. ... So you could maybe imagine (1) Champion,
(3) Mentors, and (5) PPMC/committers to start any podling.
