That is pretty cool. I would personally love to see this sort of thing. This might be a good project to propose to NumFOCUS for an enterprising young student / mentor combination under the Technical Fellowship Program. Josef would be a good mentor for this sort of thing.
The John Hunter Technical Fellowship is a 3 month to 18 month program where a student / post-doc works with a mentor (both of whom receive funding) on some project of interest to the scientific computing community. Proposals are reviewed by a grant team. We are just getting this program started and need good projects and mentors. Students can submit proposals and can often be matched with a mentor.
Contact email@example.com to inquire or send a proposal.
