Simon has actually asked me to review his Yubikey related packages, they
are on mentors already and any other reviews would be really helpful for
something like this:

My dynalogin 0.9 packages in wheezy only support HOTP, but the 1.0
release (currently parked in experimental) supports TOTP too.  dynalogin
isn't really an algorithm itself, it is just a transport mechanism for
using this stuff within a distributed environment.  Underneath, it is
Simon's oath-toolkit library doing the algorithms.

As for the GSoC project, the packages mentioned on the wiki are just
examples and the scope is potentially quite broad
