My gut also tells me that the whole Wifi package is certainly too heavy
to lift during a GSoC project. But maybe we would split this task into
smaller pieces?

Binutils and GCC are actually almost there (just take a look into the
ports repository). According to our road map, those tools will be ready
to use on Genode no later than in August. So this would rule out this
topic anyway.

Another project idea I had today was a statistical profiling/tracing
tool. As application scenarios grow in complexity, I expect that we will
increasingly ask the question, through which window all our CPU cycles
went. It would be great to have tooling support that gives us the
answer. Honestly, I don't know where to start for investigating this
topic (should we look into gprof? dtrace? ?).
