Hi David,

Regarding intern projects, I hope you don't neglect the possibility of
letting interns work on the Rust compiler itself, in addition to stuff
like HTTP servers and web frameworks.  At least for me, getting to
work *on* Rust as well as *in* Rust is one of the things that made the
intern experience particularly rewarding; I think the rest of last
summer's interns would probably agree.
