This is a great idea!

I noticed ``Translator stacking mechanism'' in there.  I'm planning on
getting some serious work done on this soon, as I'm just getting out
of a particularly stressful quarter (just one exam left now :-), and
I'm entering a particularly calm quarter and I will have plenty of
spare time on my hands.

So I'm not sure how much will be left for a student to do.  But then
again life happens, and should I fail to get started with it, it would
be a nice project.  For now, I've added a disclaimer that student
should contact me if interested.

Of course, I'm more than willing to sign up for another GSoC to get
this done if we have a shortage of volunteers.  ;-)

Not sure if I'm experienced enough to be an actual mentor, but I'm
more than willing help out when it comes to fitting the ``Sound
support'' and ``TCP/IP stack'' projects into the translator stacking

Of course, if a student beats me to it I might be able to mentor
``Translator stacking mechanism''.

Also this reminded me that I was asked to write an entry about my
experience of last years GSoC.  I wrote a quick draft and then
completely forgot!  I think this would be a great time to finish it
and put on the wiki.  ;-)
