I agree that the mentoring idea is good and cool.

On the other hand, mentoring tends to be an expensive proposition in any
environment, more or less depending on the person.  In a typical dev
environment, a new developer can easily suck up at least 20% or more of the
time for a couple of months, before the payback begins.  There is a real
short-term hit whenever a new member of a team comes on, and always the
risk that the person won't stick around for long enough to make it worth
while.
