As mentioned by others, the biggest lesson from last year's SoC (both
for us and also mirrored by a number of other projects) is that the best
projects are things which can easily be integrated into an existing body
of code.  And being clear that part of the SoC objective is getting the
code integrated is pretty important, too.
