We have about 2 or 3 others also willing to do that project. I think
you would have a better chance of doing something like the print
dialog or one of the rich editor projects. They are good projects with
a known boundary.

True, however most of them seem to map onto an existing advapi call,
so I'm not sure if it's that much work to implement.

See above, you'll have more chance of being accepted by choosing
another project idea. Good luck!
