It'd be great as well to see you work on your font-related projects such as 
different flag and accidental glyphs.  Also, I'm guessing that one does not 
need to devote 100% of one's GSoC time to writing lines of code.  LilyPond also 
needs lots of problems framed in terms of examples from the literature 
alongside the corresponding (possibly deficient) ly code.  You also do that 
really well and it'd be great to have a formalized way of establishing goals 
via this sort of research.
