    You would be the third student to take on that project
    simultaneously. That is not a problem for me (on the
    contrary, it increases the chances of one codebase being
    likeable to Linus), but it does decrease the chances of
    your patch being the one to make it upstream.

    Still, it should be a fun project to implement and
    benchmark, so go ahead if you want.

    by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian W. Kernighan
