I know :) I was actually referring to the code your Jan/Feb submission. If
you submit a proposal, you might consider focusing more on the BGL side of
proposal. Consider extending your work or adding a couple more algorithms.
It would be a lot easier to accept. Your thesis project could be described
as a "testing ground" for that work, although it probably has great value as
an example also.

Hopefully, you don't take from what I just wrote that I think that BGL are
more important than your thesis. I'm just referring to how you might write
the proposal to make it more competitive.
