No can do. The company I work for have many "high-profile" customers, so 
I'm forbidden by contract to publish intrusive code or designs for 
intrusive programs. I'm not really sure where to draw the line, but I 
think the sort of program in question here falls quite a ways on the 
wrong side of it.

If nmap was capable of loading modules to handle the result of the scans 

Remember this is also for the Summer of Code. This may not bee added,
may not be maintained after the end of the summer and may not even be
finished.  I think it sounds interesting none the less.

True. Student projects tend to lean somewhat toward intellectual
masturbation. Let's just hope they don't get carried away with

I think the projects are being directed by the groups they are  
working for and not working free of any supervision, but I am not sure.
