	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.
