To have it on the ideas list we don't need a GSoC mentor... basically  
I say that I think that the DTraceToolkit stuff should stay on the  
ideas list in some form (doesn't matter to me if it is marked up fro  
the GSoC or not).

That aside, as I already added a lot of dtrace probes in my  
linuxulator user branch (slowed down a little bit ATM because of other  
high priority tasks), I feel confident to mentor some DTrace probes  
related GSoC project (if there's some interest out there that this  
should be done), so the mentor part should not be a showstopper.
