Purely my own opinion, not the view of the GSoC admins (or rather, not
*verified* as our view), just mine:

Yes. This would be amazing. 

The money each year goes to the *org*. We can spend it as an org, and
really, it's up to the DPL. In years past, it was used to help pay for
DebConf newbies, but I (personally) would rather see an OPW slot.
