Two weeks works for me.  Also, it would be fun to track how many back doors
we each find.  We could begin to get a sense for who is good at creating
back doors, and who is good at finding them.  I'm guessing they will be
different people :-)  This might also provide a useful metric for developer
performance.  The #1 value a core developer brings to the team, IMO, is
trust in the code, and this could help us understand who is most able to
create that trust.  That could help a lot when it's time to promote a
developer to core-developer.
