Sounds very interesting! There is quite some demand for this inside (and 
outside) of our community. Regarding GSOC - do you have already a rough 
idea about an architecture and a high-level project plan on how you 
would like to structure this as a GSOC project? I encourage you to share 
this with us, so we can help you to improve it!
