Sounds very interesting :) The OpenRouter people will be happy talk
more to you, I believe, so stay tuned!

Certainly! The questions are sort of a way to get aminimum amount of
information. Anything beyond that is a bonus :)

You will have to apply via the GSoC website, or else it won't count,
but I'd recommend you talk about your idea with the OpenRouter people
first (Cc:d), so you get to get some feedback for your idea before you
make your first submission.
