Yes I am. I'm applying for Gstreamer to create a P2P Streaming System,
this is related to a research project I'm working on in my University.
I was thinking in proposing the DB designer too. I don't know which
one would be more appreciated: the DB designer or the class designer.
Personally, I'm more interested in the class designer. And one project
would be base for the other one.

I absolutely love Moonlight. According to Geoff Norton, the GTK API
for moonlight is utterly broken. Fixing it would take some time. But
that will bring other benefits. I don't know if there will be enough
time for fix it and implement the designer it self. Another problem
would be portability. Moonlight would limit the designers to Linux for
a while. I'm going to update my proposal to include a Moonlight
