I should have said, I removed FFT from items of Image Processing project of

That's generally a recommend approach for any GSoC project, especially if a
student tends to be overzealous :)

Maybe first make a GSoC project for 1D FFT which works with math and

Maybe. If there's a mentor with minimum experience of FFT implementation(s)
under her sleeve, and a student...
I expect the design part will be a challenge, esp. for someone new to GIL.
