Well, with luck Paul might agree to stay on your mailing list and provide
some advice from time to time.  I'd suggest not actually adding someone
to your PSC who isn't fairly committed to your project.  But (in my
opinion) it would be good to have an outside serious user of your project
on the PSC to represent user community needs even if they aren't actually
a developer.

At some point, when there are more good outside candidates for the PSC
you might even having one or more inside folks step down to help
rebalance things.

The key, in my mind, is to eventually provide assurance to the contributor
and user community that the project is able to act in ways that are not
entirely tied to the business wishes of Geosparc.
