hmmm. Userland app. Get a text to speech algorithm and implement it in C,
then grep through all the source and speak it all out. Not much practical

Don't remember them in the POSIX spec anywhere.....
Anyway - a summary of the recommendations from the group were
1. Get a job :-)
2. Build a lightweight kernel that would function just as a firewall
3. Research OOM
4. Develop an XML filesystem
5. Develop a BeOS filesystem
6. Optimize loading of dynamic libs
I also thought looking at making Linux POSIX 4 complient as much as
possible but that might be a bit boring. Another idea would be looking at
implementing drivers for protocols designed for wireless networks which
another department in the college is working on.
But there must be other things people would like to see done.. Anyone else
want to add to the list?
