It's a rare opportunity to be able to start from scratch -- you can fully own, not just the design, the architecture, and the code, but usually the other bits too that make for a great project, the documentation, the testing process, etc.

The "free time" thing though bothers me -- it sounds like a skunk works project. Management needs to see the sense (or in their terms, the cost benefit) of properly sanctioning the effort. If not, honestly, I wouldn't do it. You'll find it frustrating to work on it in a halfass way, and you and the project will suffer for it.
