While are free and encouraged to add your idea to the pool of
ideas, I doubt we will be accepting such a project for various
reasons, one of them being that SoC is about coding and for
example the FAQ says that writing documentation is not accepted.
Moreover, I don't think a SoC student has enough expertise to do
such font selection.

A really good SoC idea is to work on the fontmanager.
