Oh, that ;-)

I'd suggest that we might perhaps to treat it like a good internship 
program. As such, I'd suggest the goals might be:

1.) introduce people who might be good programmers to a new, rewarding 
2.) give smart people a chance to work on things that are high-value (in 
the long-term sense) but my not be currently blocking anyone's daily 
work today. Things like SVG/VML normalization, widget accessaiblity, 
i18n, etc.
3.) hopefully get smart people interested in continuing to be involved 
with the project after their SoC experience is done

Does that sound about right to everyone else?
