That's a good question. I had thought to just have them as separate 
ideas that can be worked on in parallel, but I guess you could define 
them as you say.

The project list guide does say this about defining different scopes for 
a project:

"Projects should take ~175 hours or ~350 hours for GSoC contributors to 
complete. We understand some GSoC contributors will take less time (if 
they have more knowledge of the topic or codebase) while others could 
spend more time. It is also possible that a given project idea could be 
175 hours or 350 hours depending on the scope of the idea. If the GSoC 
contributor proposes to do a smaller scope of the idea then it might be 
a 175 hr project versus if they propose doing more work with their 
proposal it could be a 350 hour project."
