Those of you who are PSF mentors for the summer of code, could I ask
you to take a look at Edin's resubmitted proposal for enhancing
Google will be funding 25 PSF projects, and this one will need a
higher score to make the cut. I think the work he is proposing will
be a nice enhancement to the mathtext facility which is used by both
matplotlib and chaco, and since one of Edin's goals is to refactor
mathtext into a standalone project, it should see some usage beyond
those two projects.
