While I believe that this will probably be something nice to have, on my 
end I don't see this project as a priority.

For me, I would prioritise the stuff that's long overdue:

  * Get 2.0 out the door

  * Review/merge the UCM stuff

  * Implement Colin's priority list routing

But if it's really a prerequisite to make the GSoC students productive, 
I guess there isn't much choice than to get it up and working really fast...

Is there a plan for making "when that times comes" != "never"? This is 
not meaning to be sarcastic - more I'm being curious about your thoughts 
on the topic.
