Thanks for voicing your needs. However, please don't confuse the GSoC  
program with wishful thinking. The GSoC program is about getting young  
students involved into a "real project". The students will almost  
surely have very little previous experience with coding for a larger  
project, let alone projects with a mixture of multiple languages such  
as gnucash. Your described feature needs know-how that is well beyond  
what any GSoC applicant will have. GSoC needs projects with a limited  
and well-defined scope such as "extending unit testing coverage on  
existing C code API". Sorry for that.
