Remember, the idea has to be something we as a project actually want
Rockbox to do and are likely to consider committing when the student's
done with it. That means you need an idea that's interesting for the
student to work on, but also one that the project wants.

I'm not sure I understand in what way this makes Rockbox better. It
sounds to me like a recipe for wasting RAM and CPU time.
