I don't think any mono developer thinks pnet is a tool to bootstrap
mono. It's a different project, with some of the same goals and
different ways to get there. 
Besides, mono can bootstrap itself, now, it doesn't need a separate C#

I already made an offer yesterday, let's make it again:
we (mono developers) will help you bootstrap your corlib so DotGNU
doesn't have to rely anymore on microsoft software. You'll likely
increase a lot your developer base, because they'll be able to compile
your core C# library on free systems.
Mono advantage will be bug reports and likely fixes so that later we'll
be able to compile our corlib with mcs as well.

It seems fair to me: we both get advantages, you'll have a completely free
system sooner and with an expanded developer base. We get enhancements
to our compiler/reflection.
