I think a Newspeak<->Smalltalk translator, written in Smalltalk, would 
be eligible for GSoC under the ESUG organization.

If it were to be written in Newspeak, I would still want to have it in 
the ideas list.  Perhaps the student itself could propose to use 
Smalltalk instead, or it could be a backup in case we lose a student due 
to conflicts with other organizations.  However, the chances for it to 
get into the program would be slimmer.
