I think it is still fairly up-to-date. I haven't touched the code lately.

However I'm not sure how much time I'll have to mentor it. So I think you'd 
need to be fairly self-powered on this one. In particular, you'd already need 
to have solid UI programming skills (using whatever toolkit you choose to 
apply to the problem).
