I think you've done a really great job of writing this proposal!
There's not much to comment on really. :-)

Not sure which ones though, but probably kill.
I will check out.
Wow, 50 hours a week is a lot. I didn't put nearly as much time into

my GSoC project, I think 20 hours a week is typical for a GSoCer. I
don't want to discourage you from working hard, but don't overwork
I am sorry if I am too arrogant. Please excuse me. One thing I want to mention is that I am crazy when it comes to Computers and FS. Thanks a lot for your concern. I dont mean 50 hrs of coding per week. It also includes time for discussion with the mentor. Community etc etc. Other preparations. I hope I can set aside 25-30 hrs for coding and documentation and rest of the time for discussions, reading various books and other resources. (I usually sit in front of my comp from 8AM to 12 AM in vacation with 6-7 hrs set aside for routine work, TV and Playing sports. this comes to around 9-10 hrs a day in vacation.) So I felt its managable. I hope I can change this rythm on the days where circumstances are extreme , say I am not well by talking to my mentor. And as far as I have understood its all abt finishing things as per the schedule and not how much time I spend on each day. Am I right? Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.
