Status of the "Project Ideas" page / Summer of Code

Hello all,

I stumbled upon the Guile Project's "Project Ideas"[1] page while
looking for inspiration for this year's issue of Google's "Summer of
Code", and I think guile would make an interesting project to hack on.

I saw the "Does Guile still need to be listed on help-wanted?"
thread[2] though, so I wonder whether any one of you is interested in
mentoring an SoC student?

Also, the ideas page looks quite out of date (it mentions R5RS
compliance and GMP, e.g.) and most CVS modules[3] don't include a `TODO'
file, so what's the status of the items on that page, and which might
be completed in a period of ~3 months?
I'm "mainly" interested in the "Value history", "C parser" and "Henry
Spencer's regexp matcher" items and garbage collection (I also read
the "Guile + Boehm GC" thread[4], so I'll assume this is an open

I was also thinking about SLIME[5] support, probably by porting
slime48[6], and maybe even evaluationg what's been done for Pika
Scheme[7] -- and ripping out the good bits... Feedback anyone?

This concludes my inquiry, thank you four your attention, and please
excuse all those footnotes ;-)
