I think the point is that the Mono's C# class libs are no longer
(L)GPL'd, but rather under the MIT X11 license now.

I don't see this as a huge obstacle.  Given that we intend to
use (the higher-level parts of) Mono's C# class libs, I think
it's pretty clear that we should be willing to help out Mono
upon request when they see something that they'd like to use,
by making it available to Mono under the terms of that license.

However the request should come from a Ximian employee or some
officially appointed Mono representative -- it would be against
our principles to make our code available under non-copyleft
terms to anyone for no good reason.

Greetings, Norbert.
