My concern on using GSOC students for critical stuff like this is that
those who gain the skills 'securing' Pidgin/libpurple would then leave
and the project may be in the position of not really having a completed
task, poorly documented etc., despite best intentions of the mentor and
others within the project to see the GSOC student complete their task.
This has happened before.
