I'll guess you might have come up short because Google is funding
three proposals for an existing program, Tux Type.


Unfortunately none of the three is a port to sugar. Probably the
port can be done in exactly the same way as my Tux Paint port,
since all three tux4kids programs (Tux Paint, Tux Math, Tux Type)
are written to use the SDL library.

I suggest that you try doing the Tux Type port.
