Failing that maybe Computer Guru you would be interested in mentoring
a student in that or a related project?
It sounds similar to a couple of project ideas Matt included last
year, but that we didn't have a student for:
* A testing suite that measures performance of various components and
can be regularly run against new code.
* Currently WP loads all its code on every page, could a selective
code loading scheme improve performance in a meaningful way?
