What do we mean by a council lead? If we're talking about someone to
oversee their meetings, then I see no problem with it. If we're talking
about a Gentoo Lead, then I'm against that as I don't want to ever see
the council reduced to a single person body - there are some advantages
to collective bodies. One of them is the requirement for people to talk
and to be able to generate a consensus.

As stated above, I think we should have a collective body. Therefore to
choose someone to oversee meetings should be a council decision -
including the choice to not have someone overseeing the meetings.
