[Maxima] students involved in Maxima

The first two students I have followed are
math students and did the following:
(1) implementation of 3sat-polycracker in Maxima
- done, is it of any interest to anyone?
(2) optimizing (gf) finite field library for Maxima
- almost done, it is going to be way faster
The next students (if they appear but it is
very likely that they do) are computer science students.
These might also implement something mathematical
as long as it is understandable.
I might also have more math students in the future
who want to work on a software project, as well.

I don't know, yet.
I'll let you know when they show up.
It should also be something I must be able
I use to code in Scheme lots of time ago
but I am not a Lisp-expert.
If you have a Lisp related suggestion I might
need some help.
My personal wishes:
Personally I would like to see a better
and interactive gnuplot support in Maxima:
the user should be able to draw on the same
gnuplot more than once.
As far as the lisp is concerned I would like
to have Maxima be compiled with a Lisp version
that does not have an unreasonably low limit
on the number of arguments for functions
(CLISP is no affected but the other lisps
fail with as few arguments as about 200).
Could this be fixed by setting an appropriate
parameter before compilation?
