I'm not...

The two projects have some different goals.  Both seek to
create a C# compiler and environment, but mono is
bootstrapping using Microsoft's C# compiler and is
being built using gcc.  No contest, if you ask me.  However,
if you'd like to know.  The compiler has the most work done
to it.  The library has the most that has to be done thus
far.  Perhaps there might be a point for collaberation there
(I haven't looked at the library development, yet). 
However, we're not going to stop and wait for Ximian to
accept our previous collaberation proposals.  Portable.NET
is a fine addition to the DotGNU project, and it makes a
fine GNU package.  And Rhys makes a fine addition to our
Steering Committee.
