Sure, the ideas page is just an *ideas* page to inspire potential
students. You can always propose ideas that are not listed there.

You should contact the wget[0] maintainers in the first place. Discuss
your idea with them and check if some active developer is able to mentor

Since they are not listed on the projects list, that could probably mean
that nobody has volunteered for mentoring. It could also mean that they
haven't thought about GSoC.

Contact them ASAP. Meanwhile, you can write your proposal and submit it
through melange, and we can keep looking for a mentor.
