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.
