My concerns with this is that:
1) I think there is more to PPMC membership than just voting on releases.
I think the first major votes for Apache Flex was what the project icon
was going to be, and voting in new committers.
2) I thought the main thrust of this thread is about what to do when
mentors get too busy.  If they are too busy then either they won't grant
worthy podling newbies the right to cast binding votes on releases, or
they will do so too hastily.  All I'm suggesting is that there is an
existing list of qualified folks that is much larger than the IPMC to help
back up busy mentors and allow a podling to get a release out.  If you
think that "all TLP PMC members" is too wide a net, the backup could also
just be "any ASF member".
