I don't know what Fredrik thinks, but I would not consider this ideal.
Ideally, there would be a single source that can be installed to both
2.x and 3.x. This is much better than two source trees, as the latter
would require porting of changes back and forth.

I don't think a GSoC project can possibly help with that.
