Re: Google Summer of Code Ideas
A proper IRC client.
I know Empathy does IRC, but it is unsuitable for real use.
Try opening a few dozen channels in its tabbed interface.
Try idling in a busy channel.
All the real IRC clients either *are* a terminal app, or look like
terminal app in a GTK window. Compare some screens from Textual to
A client with proper spacing, alignment, typesetting, focus...
In short; a design-driven IRC client.
I think this should be doable in 3 months.

FYI we already have a time machine application, Cronopete. The
interesting work items for it are
1) btrfs snapshots or even old copy-on-write versions of files
outside of snapshots as storage medium, instead of a dedicated
2) Integration into applications, much like for Contractor clients
