Is this something that an Outreachy or GSoC student could contribute to?
Have you seen the work Harsh has been doing? This is probably a
useful example of the type of things GSoC students are able to
contribute. Personally, I feel that by modularizing as much as possible
it makes it easier for people to get into and work on one area that they
are motivated to work in without bumping into anybody else.
Another Outreachy round starts soon. The benefit of any work done in
GSoC 2016 may not be ready for DebConf to use until 2017 though
