Students have to write up detailed proposals for the task they intend
to complete, including a number of milestones. Google evaluates their
applications. I can't remember exactly how, between Google and the
mentor, an application gets chosen. The student gets USD 0.5K up front.
They get another 2K for making it to the halfway point, based on mentor
feedback, and the final 2K comes at the end.

The first major milestone will be decoding a progressive intraframe,
then a progressive interframe. Then, if we can find encoded interlaced
samples (HD DVD?) perhaps we can worry about interlaced decoding.
