A topology-generating and testing functions can be used for testing, among
other things. The connectives are intended to make the BGL a little more
algebraically complete. Basically, we're just looking to make the BGL a
little more feature complete.

2. Will the project proposal be expected to include the API design?

The project necessitates API design :) You would be working on a library.
