This is nice, but students are allowed to submit their own ideas too --
the wiki page is more of a brainstorming session than a clear-cut list.

I disagree that we should go through the process of choosing a
definitive mentor for say 10 ideas, when only one will likely be
selected. This is not coherent with how things were done last year, nor
how the selection process functions; the students will be submitting
proposals to us for things they want to do -- ideas really are just
ideas. If we spell things out too clearly we won't be able to tell
which students know what they are talking about.

We do have some leeway here, as google won't be looking at the ideas
pages right away.
