I've looked into that before, and I think the conclusion was that merely
moving from jhautobuild to Jenkins doesn't qualify for GSoC because it's
mainly a sysadmin kind of task rather than a programming kind of task.

But if someone was willing to move to Jenkins *and* add some interesting
new test features, that seems like it could fit the constraint.  I'd be
happy to help mentor such a project.
