That may be true, but our release cycles also feel like an eternity :-P
and it might make sense to have, say, at least one TC member on board who
has been on the TC at least since the current "oldstable" was released.

So I'd propose a six-year term limit where every 1.5 years the two
longest-serving members step down for a year and a half.

Or, if we want an odd number of members, let three members step down
every two years.
