My Idea for GSOC

Hello, my name is Daniel Oom and I'm a computer science and
engineering student at Chalmers in Gothenburg, Sweden. I'm in my
second year and I would love to partake in GSOC. I know C, use Linux
daily and don't like it when I have to reboot my computer to windows.
I am very interested in game development and real time rendering, and
have actually completed one simple game (written in Java/OpenGL). But
I still have so much left to learn, and I believe I can learn a lot
through working with wine in these areas.
My idea, or rather how I would like to improve wine, is related to
gaming. I've tried to run some games in wine and sometimes it works
very well but more often than not there's bugs. The bad performance,
misc bugs and general unresponsiveness of Steam is my greatest itch.
Though as I'm not versed in wine's code base I don't know what would
constitute as reasonable goals for GSOC. (I did do a bug report a long
time ago, but back then I did not know a lot about programming).
Would, for example: fix Steam's in-game overlay feature be a good goal?
Some advice about where to take it from here would be greatly appreciated.
