If you think of them as two projects, then they probably are. As a
mentor, I won't touch that -- most students have enough trouble just
getting started on *one* project.
Also, note that projects that are just adding to a test suite are not
eligible for Google support.

You should go over the mailing list archives first. var folder
creation was discussed extensively a couple of months ago.
In general, if you're going to propose a project not on our list for
*this year* (which hasn't been published yet), it is usually helpful
to review the past two year's threads on the mailing lists (both
mailman-developers and mailman-users) to get an idea of what the
current needs are considered to be, and what things the developers are
