I do want to emphasize one point -- I think we're doing OK getting 
newbies to work on the "edges" of the code.  What I am concerned about 
and want to encourage is for people who aren't experts to find ways to 
start working on the "core" technology.

Doing design documentation is a good idea, but it's a lot of overhead, 
and I'm not confident it's going to happen.  That's why I proposed the 
"buddy" system -- it's more incremental and on-demand.
