I'll just be blunt: would someone in Munich be interested
to supervise a diploma thesis on the matter?
The cognoscenti know that I have found a solution (at least on
paper) via reflection in ZF a while ago, but I guess the interest
in ZF is limited right now.
I am optimistic that my reflection-based theorem in ZF
can be recast in HOL as a HOAS-directed constructive meta function
(think: Twelf-style function definition).
For some reason I am in possession of a well-behaved animation principle
for HOAS-directed meta-recursions, so don't mistake me for a
science-fiction author just now.

If someone is interested, I will provide you with a write-up of
these thoughts next semester.
