Sorry for the delay. I'm not sure that's the best strategy for having
results that will help users in general. Having all functions
implemented is a nice thing, but many of them don't cause problems in
real world application and web pages. I think I would prefer testing
random web pages and implementing things that they need. This, however,
would be tricky to set goals required for GSoC application. Maybe you
could come up with a mix of both? Start with selected area (say,
IHTMLTable*, not necessarily whole) and move to random APIs required by
pages as the project progresses?
