The notion that established cohousers — either those who were the pioneers of 
their community, or those who have lived successfully in cohousing for a number 
of years — could be mentors to a formational group is interesting, appropriate, 
and worth a try.  But for that formational group, I was hoping to make a case 
in favor of inter-generational, rather than retired.  Depends in part on 
whether one pictures the cohousing experience as an adaptation to diversity, or 
a lifestyle enclave.
