There is a few proposals already in
https://github.com/boostorg/boost/wiki/Google-Summer-of-Code:-2019 that you
can use as reference.
It is not 100% clear from the ticket what needs to be done, but it seems
like a good motivator for a GSOC, my only concern is that it may not be big
enough to keep someone working full time on it for about 3 months. However,
you can certainly extend the scope to make it fit.
