It is a great project and it already been started and is usualable
with gocr now an has been for two years.  It is called socrates and
can be found at the pserver:anonymous at
in the module socrates.

Now admittedly it isn't very fancy but that is mostly because when I
wrote it gocr was a pretty poor ocr engine.  It may have gotten better
I'm not sure.  There is another package or engine which is making
improvements pretty quickly which is ocrad and it is a gnu project.
You might like to interface socrates with ocrad as well as gocr that
would be really useful.

Socrates has been publicly discussed on the site in
projects and on the speakup list for years so this level of ignorence
is quite baffling to me.
