No, I am talking about the IL-runtime that P.Net is seeking to write, not the 
greater good of the dotGNU SEV. Both Mono and P.Net wish to have one of these 
(or am I mistaken?) and certainly should at least be discussing architecture 
ideas with each other.

Actually, I'm sure you're right, as the code is GPL'ed, that shouldn't be a 
problem, but it would be useful to ensure that we are both coming at this 
problem from the same direction.

I guess what I am saying is that I don't think Mr P.Net should have severed 
relations with Mono so thoroughly and so quickly. God knows, Miguel can be 
difficult at times, but he can usually be convinced...
