Unfortunately, we've since learned that Aleksey is not eligible this
year due to a change in GSoC's student eligibility rules compared to
prior years.

Shinnok, Aleksey - I would recommend that the two of you work on this as
a non-GSoC project, then.  Perhaps with reduced scope.  Focus on just
the most pressing tasks, such as supporting jumbo, *2john, and making
(new) binary builds for OS X and Linux.  Once these are taken care of,
it'd make sense to discuss further tasks.
