Is the latter even complicated enough for a GSoC project?

I wonder if we should just remove the CUPS port as I think it may be
too complex.

I also think we should remove tasks that other students could not
complete before, with the exception of Zeroconf, in which the student
just did not have the time to work on. Specifically: "Implement ICMP
error handling and propagation". Though wasn't some progress made on
this last year?
