There aren't so many new features in 2.12.  And only the
doc-related snippets need to be evaluated.

15 minutes is way too high.  90% of them can be done in 2 minutes.
And the snippets that can't be fixed in that time will have great
educational value, so if we can find non-experts to do this, it'll
be much better.

Including stuff from input/new/, we only have 288 snippets worth
examining.  cd input/lsr; ls | wc;

I really don't think so, mostly because that means that we need to
hand out more LSR editorships.

Also, my original 20-hour estimate[1] was for good tag
organization.  Sure, there's many more tasks that can be done for
LSR.  If there's more interest (i.e. volunteers), we can always
tackle more.

[1] you may notice that 2*288/60 gives 9 hours, which is in line
with my "think of how long it would take me, then double it" rule
for estimation.
