Not only this idea is listed in the future GSOC projects page, but this
was also my project as a GSOC student, last year [1]. I think the reason
it’s still there is because I didn’t complete it. Since the end of last
year’s summer, no further work has been done, but I plan to get back on
it this summer. Or maybe a little bit sooner; if you’re willing to work
on this now, I’d manage to get some time to help you out. Feel free to
poke me on the devel MUC or mail me directly.
