I just got an additional simple idea which is somewhat connected to ASE,
which can be used as ideas @ google summer of code.
Namely, there is already a similar scripting interface that is specific
for Quantum Espresso, its name is PWTK.

It is smaller and more limited than ASE but nevertheless functional,
flexible and working. It has some very useful productivity-oriented
features. It is written in Tcl, but because python is getting
increasingly and Tcl decreasingly popular one may consider to write also
a python implementation of PWTK.
