OggIndex migration sounds like a good project; getting patches into 
existing open source players to support the new ogg index. I'd be happy 
to provide technical mentoring for this.

Another idea would be to integrate the patches which Mozilla has applied 
to liboggz and liboggplay into the main libogg{z,play} repositories, 
though that's not a big job. Perhaps that could form part of a larger 
project to continue to improve libogg{z,play}? We talked about 
refactoring liboggplay at FOMS2010, maybe that could be part of this 
project idea?

More work on the seek-rewrite branch would also go down well; the 
seeking story in Ogg is still painful. Making liboggz 64bit safe 
(particularly on Windows, the largest target software market) would be nice.
