It would be useful, but improving the metrics website to be a better
TorStatus website would be much more useful. :)

Maybe I should accept the fact that the world has roughly as many
JSP/servlet developers as it has TorStatus maintainers and just do it

I'm afraid I wouldn't be a good mentor for a PHP GSoC project.  I'm both
incapable and unwilling to read PHP code.

But this shouldn't stop you from working on TorStatus unrelated to GSoC.
I'd be glad to help you understand the metrics data if you're interested!
