The people who said unit tests would not be a welcome project were 
wrong. As the person who oversees our GSoC participation every year, I 
know for a fact there are at least three core people who would be 
psyched to mentor a project focused on tests. We even had two project 
suggestions on our Ideas page last year at 
http://codex.wordpress.org/GSoC2011 that were testing-specific.
