I definately think it is, and I would love to help you. I was going to
choose this as my senior project for my undergrad, but it was just before
the last KHG (Kern hackers guide) and there wasn't enough information for me.
Not only would it aid in future development, but it would also help in
generating bug reports, and general acct/system maintence.

Looking forward to working with you..
