Well, I don't think the "full time" part is really a hard requirement,
but you would have to be able to get the project done within the SoC
timeline, which may very well require full time work. It's kind of
irrelevant though, since the 2009 SoC is over (or were you thinking about
this for the 2010 one?).

wow, willing to work, organized, and polite too! I can't speak officially
for the project, but I think most people here would agree with me when I say
"yes, please, work on this!"
With an approach like this I think you'll get plenty of people willing to
help you get this going. You'll also likely get many opinions, some
conflicting, about how things should be done, so it may help to have a
little bit of a thick skin. :) Nevertheless, anyone willing to put out
the effort to work on NetBSD, especially for something like this that
many people have expressed a desire for in the past, will be welcome

Myself, I'm a bit short on time, but I expect there will probably be some
other people chiming in here that will be able to help you out.
However, I'd certainly be able to chip into a unofficial "bounty" program,
whether in cash or beer (happen to live anywhere near Chicago?), if anyone
else is interested.
