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
"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."
