Remember, though, that unlike the typical handwriting-recognition
1) we need to recognize only a single character at a time (more like
Kanji than Latin, I suppose), so there's no need to detect where
one character ends and the next begins, and
2) we don't need to return a single correct answer but rather a set
of the top N most likely candidates.

Sounds reasonable. Or should we have the student do that (at stage 0
of the project -- as we're negotiating the proposal)?
