I already considered this. I'm not sure it's a good idea, though. It
could discourage students from taking interesting tasks... We can't take
all students anyways; so some overlap is OK. Here it was an exceptional
case, because both students seem very promising and have a good chance
of being accepted...
Maybe we should add a note to the procfs task though, because there seem
to be much more applications for this one than the others...

No, only to mentors and administrators. You want to mentor?... ;-)
