I'm the author of Deja Dup.  Writing a new GUI seems like a big leap.
It might be better to incrementally improve any issues with the existing
GUI.  Do you have particular suggestions?

David Bensimon (cc'ed) also had a backup idea for GSoC that also turned
into 'improving Deja Dup'.  I think the two ideas could probably be
collapsed.  I talked with David about possible features that would be
good for students.

I started a page on Deja Dup's wiki to track them:

So I'm certainly open to helping mentor students.  David also said he
would help with some of the mentoring work.
