[Twisted-Python] GSoC

Hi all,

the GSoC FAQ was recently published [1] and I wondered if Twisted could be a 
mentoring organization for the next installment of the GSoC program.

I think it's a good opportunity to bring new developers to Twisted by having a 
mentor. I was a GSoC student last year and it was pretty fun.

I'd offer my help to mentor a student, but I think I couldn't become an 
official mentor (though I'd like to be one) as I'm not a Twisted developer. 
In any case, I could bring my experience as an ex-student :-)

Anyway, some areas a student could give a helping hand are:

- porting some Twisted.web2 feature(s) to Twisted.web
- improving support for Twisted in Jython or IronPython
- porting Amp to Java, C++, etc.
- adding or improving support for Twisted in an external library (e.g. Thrift, 
Amazon services, Storm, Protocol Buffers, etc.)

What do you think?
