[SciPy-user] Numpy/Cython Google Summer of Code project idea

> A specific project along these lines, that would be very beneficial

What level of experience do you think would be necessary for the
student for this? I've got a fair amount of Python & C experience, and
I've used numpy and Pyrex (but not Cython) in the past. I wouldn't
mind putting in some time to become familiar with the particulars
before submitting a project proposal.
