I am not aware of anyone approaching this.
It is not a too simple task.

My idea was that we should start with a
struct NVT_Desc {} in OpenVAS-Client and step-by-step
change to this strucure (which members are some Glib Datacontainers)
all over the client. Probably some lessons need to be learned.
Once finished this, the gained experience should be good
enough to approach the server.

In the meantime we'll try to make the server as light as possible
to increase readability of this code ;-)
