Considering GSOC "stipend" is 5500USD (4840'ish €) most students should be
fairly comfortable with paying their rent, bills and food from the Stipend
during the GSOC period.
I think not calling it an internship on Google's side is more about
avoiding all the legal implications any correlation with "work" would have.
