As I wrote in the commit doc, I regard Mentor as more a counselor, and 
Shepherd as a a guide. Hence I think that Mentor is both more 
appropriate for the name and more understandable.
(KenC seems to prefer it too IIRC)

My take: leave Mentor, and take a quick poll in case others really won't 
take it.
