Its a great initiative, although more support for pd on android is
interesting and can give a more "google appeal" to it, try to cover many
areas where help is needed, like in the previous applications for GSoC.

Exhibition <http://processing.org/exhibition/>)
Yep, very important! For instance I learned here in this list that EA used a
modified pd for Spore audio synthesis! That should give pd some points :P

best of luck with this year's application,
