I for one would be happy to support you working on this. :)

However, as a mild warning, most of the 'easy' stuff here is done (and  
working) in a branch (zby++).

There is, however, a lot of 'fun' (assuming you have the twisted  
definition of 'fun' that mst and I share which includes writing back  
compat code) until it would be in any way in a releasable state, but  
there was/is a reasonably firm plan for how to achieve a reasonable  
level of compatibility which I'd be happy to brief you on (so that we  
can get some specifics written down).

IIRC, students need to write an individual proposal up of some form.  
Can you look into what's actually required of you, and get to work  
knocking one up, then highlight potential/registered mentors for  
technical input and people in the doc team for copy editing?

I guess you'll be able to do a reasonable amount of the boilerplate  
trivially, and we'll catch up in the next few days with various people  
for opinions / thoughts on the technical bits to get a coherent plan  
(of the scope, and strategy) together.

Well volunteered!
