Yep, I was quite involved for three years and even acted as admin one year,
but I stopped mentoring after GSoC 2011. For one I don't have the bandwidth
for it (but come to think about, I think I offered to be a back-up mentor for
some thing using Rcpp but being primairly BioC) and Google also encourages
rotation of personel so that things don't get stuck in the same rut.

So if someone wants to have a go at a Rcpp-based GSoC project: by all means,
go for it.

And there are of course other organizations too (eg I mentored for R as well
as within Debian).
