I think it is a simple enough idea to implement ASAP with maximum effect.
Looking at my own applicatns I see those that applied because thay 
"wanted to help" but can't say exactly what they intend to do and then
there are those who would be a great addition to the project but are just
not ready yet, in regards to packaging, philosophy, etc.  

And I think this is a proposal is something most people could possibly
agree on with, as the hurdle for cutting people isn't very high.

The only problem would be, that if even one developer disagrees, he could
start blindly recommending people. Then we'd return to the current

Nevertheless, I second the proposal. We should try it how it works in
real life.
