[DotGNU]Volunteers needed: pnet plugin for SEE

This is a call for volunteers to explore how to turn the
Portable.NET runtime engine (ilrun) into a plugin for
the Andromeda/SEE environment.

The engine is already mostly embeddable: the main file
to replace is "ilrun.c", which starts the engine and then
calls the "Main" function.  To write a plug-in, you will
need to replace "ilrun.c" with the necessary C++ glue
code to let SEE launch it.

The goal would be to produce a plug-in that can load
an IL executable (probably a .dll assembly), and then
make calls into the IL code whenever SEE requests
services from the plug-in.  When realised, this will
allow us to write SEE components in C#.

This project is another step along the way to realising the
DotGNU vision of a complete platform of integrated

Skills necessary: Moderate-level C and C++.  C# isn't
strictly necessary, because you can use the existing
examples to test the plug-in.
