Hi Klaus,

I don't mean that all the projects must be oriented toward inclusion in 
the Squeak image, such as compilers etc. What I'd like is having 
projects that can possibly be delivered in little more than two months 
of work, and that in case may have a good possibility to be included. 
The problem with some of last year's project was that the scope was so 
wide that it was very difficult for the student to deliver more than 
some kind of prototype.
