This might be selfish, but how about at least one of those ideas be an OLL
(or even scholarLY) thing?

I can't guarantee what the exact status of scholarLY annotations and the
LaTeX package will be by April - therefore I definitely don't suggest a
direct extension of *that/those* projects. (Although I can say that I at
least will get the ball rolling again in February when I am finally back in
the States (if anxiously so) and have the current wave of work behind me.)
But it would be nice to see another project emerge from our little corner
of the pond again.
