Finding the right amount of work is certainly tricky. Luckily d3dx9 has many 
functions, so if you find out that you have plenty of time left you can include 
extra work in your project later on. You don't have to get the set of work 
perfect at the start - reevaluating the amount of work needed and adjusting 
the goals during the project is part of gsoc.

However, finding a most likely doable, but not overly simple set of work does 
improve the application. We'll provide feedback on this(as I just did, I hope 
others who know the library better will jump in if I am telling you incorrect

Wrt this specific function we already have some related infrastructure for 
D3DXLoadSurfaceFrom* . Also other parts of Wine(gdi32.dll, windowscodecs.dll) 
have functions for handling various on-disk file formats which can(and should) 
be used. (That's just some generic implementation hint, it doesn't mean that 
it makes the idea good or bad)
