Trying to summarise a bit. Hope I haven't misrepresented anyone.

[a.grandi at gmail.com]
Feeling left out as a newbie; proposing different levels of coding
challenge / team group. Suggesting that less experienced coders might
stay away.

[stestagg at gmail.com]
Suggesting a change-now bell or hooter or whatever [similar in fact to
the 5-minute Dojo style we started with way back when, but still with teams]

[Michael Grazebrook]
Suggesting streaming teams but giving each one a mentor who would coach
but not code. (+1 from a.grandi at gmail.com)

None of these ideas are unreasonable. We're taking a break for the
summer now, but it makes sense for the Dojo team to get together before
September (which we probably would have done, anyway) to look at
possible changes to the format, either overall or for specific evenings.

Obviously, bring on more ideas & responses. Ultimately, we won't be able
to please all the people all of the time. But we certainly want to
understand what we could improve.
