Sorry for the long hiatus. I have been following the conversation
about SoC 2008; I will not be able to commit any time this summer
because it's a major phase-change for me career-wise. But if someone
is willing to mentor and is worried about not being able to give
enough time etc, then I can help out there. Officially or unofficially
doesn't matter to me.
