Ok, so you don't want to *depend* on Pnet ?. Then how can
we *depend* on you ?. (yeah two people dead).

Hey, Hey ! Control is too much a word for "Interdependece".

I think you were misguided by Rhys's coding speed ;-). 

Also there have been quite a number of Free Software that was reverse
engineered (SAMBA,device drivers.......).

If I can make a mistake "Andy Satori" for being a Mono contributor,
how can we be sure who is a contributor ?.

Also it is not very wise to license out code to someone you don't know.
(lupus -- we know Mono......)

My code will be GPl/LGPL as of now. But in case DotGNU and Mono decide 
to "co-operate" rather than swap classes -- count me in.


PS: lupus, I'm sort of a GPL fan -- I think you could read my 
    other suggestion in a previous mail.
