I think there is/can/should be a different bar for TLPs "idle-ness", and
that of a podling. A TLP has confirmed itself for operation/oversight, even
when it may slow down. A podling hasn't had that confirmation, however.

One of the more continual issues within the Incubator is the amount of
mentor energy to "go around". It seems that if a podling has hit a dead
end, then it is best for the Incubator (as a whole) to go ahead and retire
it, and apply its energies to podlings that are making progress towards
graduation.
