Why not just spend a few hours to find out how much work it is? :)

I've found that starting to work on something is a good way to get
a rough idea of how complex the task at hand is, at minimum.
Just theorizing about a task will likely make me overlook important
details that add to its complexity.

Glad you want to work on this,
Stefan
