Perl Monk Hackersby srawls (Friar)

I've noticed that there are a lot of good suggestions as to updates to the site, but many times people reply with a message like "nice, but vroom is probably too busy for that." I know it takes a lot to code this site, so I got to thinking...
Would it be possible to have something analogous to the Site Documentation Clan, but for people to help code the site. That is, write the necsasary code to implement some of the ideas that are suggested. I know this might be a security problem, so here are a few ideas:
1. The people in this group would vote on what ideas to implement (with the consent of vroom of course).
Those are just a few ideas that came to my head as I was writing this, if you have any more please feel free to reply with them.
I was thinking that mabey vroom would pick members for this group like he did for the editors, those of the community that are trustworthy and hard-working. We could also take volunteers, after vroom has approved them.
There is one thing missing from my proposal: a good name for this group. I started to suggest 'Perl Monk Hackers,' but felt that might be a little vauge as to what this group does. I am very open to suggestions, and encorouge you to post a good and thoughtful name.
Gee... after reading over this post, I began to think: wouldn't it be the ultimate irony if someone replies to this saying "nice idea, but vroom doesn't have the time to implement it" : )
