Summer of Code, reloaded

Problem is that for cathedral-like projects like LiveJournal Summer of Code participants can not really choose area of application.

They likely don't know project intrisnics, so they can't just invent interesting idea and implement that. Also, they have trouble choosing from idea lists provided by those projects - which look like greek to newcomers.

So easy-to-understand tasks like building client application will be crowded heavily, while system in-depth tasks will be lacking attention.

Given all that, can you write down some tasks that are unpopular between SoC participants, yet wanted.
I will choose some underdog task and will dig straight into perl code, I promise!
