I can't speak for the others but IMO the GSOC program introduced an unhealthy attitude 
into FOSS:
Get into a FOSS project solely for the money, patch something up in pre-alpha quality 
that's not yet good enough to be merged into the main tree, and leave after the money is 

While I'd like to see an Android port, it would be of no use if the GSOC student 
disappears after the payment and no longer maintains it...
