All good ideas, but I'd encourage you to concentrate on one field and make a
really good proposal based on that. For example a good numeric quaderature
/ ODE solver library would probably fill a summers work, likewise the other
ideas, if you have time to do them all then great, but it's generally better
to submit a tightly focused proposal with a clear vision of than a larger
ragbag of ideas.

HTH and good luck! John.
