I have been monitoring the ensuing thread. As the FFmpeg GSoC admin, I
should mention that I don't find this to be an suitable project. Mostly,
I'm thinking in terms of qualification tasks. I see these other students
working hard on tight C programming; how could we let in a higher level
task like this?

I was also thinking of proposing a test engineering project (based on my
FATE work). But, again, that's a little too high level and I didn't want
to create multiple tiers of qualifications.
