Hi, did he specify a timeframe when that project should run? Also a deadline 
when he needs the proposal sketch would be interesing.
Since it is a 3-4 months project, I think it should be something big enough to 
actually spend the entire time; also not too simple that there is an academic 
Here is something I could imagine for Rocs:

Proposal Sketch for "Implementation of Flow Networks":
* create a plugin for Flow Network Graphs (actually, add sink and source, use 
directed edges)
* create icons for special nodes of a flow network
* implement some basic algorithms for flows in JavaScript _and_ according 
examples graphs; this could include:
  - Ford-Fulkerson
  - Edmonds-Karp
  - Preflow-Push algorithm
  - ...
* write a documentation chapter in the handbook about this class of graphs and 
specific methods allowed by this data structure.
* for at least one of these algorithms modify the implementation such that its 
execution actually _explains_ how the algorithm works (e.g., which series of 
augmenting pathes are selected...)
