More thoughts on this anyone? Or preferences for this idea or the numpy.org
one? Submission deadline is April 3rd and we can only put in one proposal
this time, so we need to (a) make a choice between these ideas, and (b)
write up a proposal.

If there's not enough replies to this so the choice is clear cut, I will
send out a poll to the core devs.

Do we have anyone interested in doing the work in either case? That seems
like the most important consideration to me...
