Also we had 6 or 7 ideas listed that are ports to Haiku of apps, of
those AbiWord, VideoLAN, NetSurf, FFMpeg, BZFlag and Blender made the
cut (did I miss any?).  NetSurf even has the Haiku port listed on
their ideas page.  I'd suspect a student could apply for a Haiku port
of one of these to both Haiku and to the specific project, increasing
the chances.  Students can apply for up to something like 20 projects
right? ;)  Also Boost and wxWidgets made the cut as well...
