I was thinking for a first project I'd build a tool for laying out
columns for a model, to save myself some typing later on. It wouldn't
have the fancy interestingness you described. It's just going to be a
data-entry tool for producing an initial lib/MyJiftyApp/Model/MyModel.pm
with all the column declarations in place.

However, I imagine it could be adaptable for larger purposes. For what
you have in mind, do you think this might be a helpful contribution to
the front end?
