But does it really involve any amount of coding? I'd hate to think we were 
offloading this to a student if all it involves is collecting a bunch of 
modules, running some scripts and reading the install profile manual. Is it 
really the best project for a student to learn from?

Indeed the idea of a database of content for theme developers to work with 
had been raised before but never materialized, this is a much bigger 
project. There's also the issue of maintaining it moving forward.

This is perhaps the sort of thing that comes under the Drupal Associations 
aim of 'supporting developers'. In the mean time, I'd make a small 
contribution to a reverse bounty, but it would be very small.
