[wp-hackers] SoC 2011 project idea

As a general comment to all potential applicants: The ideas presented on  
the wiki are just that, ideas. If there is something in WordPress which  
you feel you can enhance, or a functionality which could be added, which  
is of significant size that it'd be ideal for a project, -Do not hesitate  
to write a proposal on it- All decent proposals from people who appear to  
be good candidates will be looked at closely, and if they can make a  
compelling case, there -will- be someone who will mentor the project.

But remember, SoC 2011 has just been announced, WordPress has not even  
submitted an application yet. Little thought has been put into potential  
projects by developers yet (All focus is on 3.1).

Please also look at last years projects as well as the ideas page, a  
number of them (including Move WordPress) were attempted.
