I am very in favor of this idea.  I usually suggest excactly this
when I talk to administrations who are often keen to spend money on
Free Software projects and don't know how to do this.

I see two benefits: Needed work gets done and students are educated
in real life programming.  There is also the hope that those
students don't make all the beginners errors when they start their
professional life.
