Given the relative paucity of core Python GSoC ideas, I think you should
go for both of these, *especially* if you have a mentor up front.  So,
write 'em up, add 'em to the GSoC page, and let's see who we get...
If we get good applications for both, then I think we can "fund" both of

I do think you should be prepared for pushback from python-dev on any
such ideas ;).  Don't get too ambitious about writing up *your* way of
fixing things, but rather make sure you and the students are prepared to
adapt to what people on python-dev think.  Mind you, ultimately the
people doing the work should make the decisions, but input from
python-dev is usually pretty useful even when it's contradictory!
