Well most of the ideas are better described, but a lot of them are
still one-liners. And the following line in in the gsoc faq suggest a
detailed idea page is not critical for being accepted:

[...] we've heard from past mentoring organization participants that
some of their best student projects are those that greatly expanded on
a proposed idea or were blue-sky proposals not mentioned on the Ideas
list at all.

Anyway, Thanks Brian for putting time in this. Hopefully some
interested people still pick up some of the ideas.
