[Ffmpeg-devel] Xiph's "Ghost"

just found this on Google SoC.
Development assistant for the "Ghost" audio codec
Designing a cutting edge perceptual codec is a very daunting task. Xiph
is in the research stage on a new low-latency, general purpose audio
codec, code-named "Ghost". This is basically a "code assistant"
position, where you will be asked to implement, test, and give feedback
on ideas from Christopher Montgomery, designer of the Ogg Vorbis
format. Be prepared to learn a lot about audio coding, or apply what
you already know. While there's less "ownership" potential in this
project proposal, it will be a great opportunity to learn about
compression algorithm design, practice your programming chops, and
learn to work in team.

Hardware implementation of Theora decoding
Working on a hardware theora decoder, that can be used in embedded
devices, dvd players and video pods. Presumedly GPL verilog source to
run on an FPGA.
Hey, that's what Elphel does. Duplicate work?!
