That doesn't solve the general problem, though.

I mean, ok.  Peter is now taken care of.  James is Peter's
"mentor" in lilypond terms [1].  But what happens when the next
casual contributor comes along, and we all stand around whistling
with our hands in our back pockets?

We should have somebody who takes care of contributors without
dedicated mentors.  In mathematical/logical terms, we need a
barber who shaves everybody who does not shave themselves.
I shouldn't need to get involved when there's a new contributor,
much less a known+experienced contributor like Peter!
