I would further that by not only allowing spoken languages but generalize
the concept to take any form of bit groupings, then it could be useful in
other areas of comp-sci.

Furthermore, Bloom filters would only be one aspect of such a library, the
underlying data structures would require tries, wide-column stores etc.

Seems more like a few GSOCs.
