Actually, I think that serialization extensions would be great student
projects. It's real, it's meaty and it's increadibly useful.
In fact, I might suggest we go for JSON (http://www.json.org/) or YAML
(http://www.yaml.org/) instead of another XML binding. JSON is getting really
big for web applications using AJAX. Both JSON and YAML would have some
slightly tricky design aspects as I think on the input side the archiver would
need to know which types to use for the array and map-like data structures.
I'll put these on the wiki if you don't object.
