System.CodeDom is part of the "System" assembly, but it
isn't specified by ECMA.  It is part of the MS-specific
.NET Framework SDK pieces.

Or just use Mono's implementation, as they already have it?

Since it isn't ECMA-compliant and can probably be written
completely in C# with no runtime engine dependencies,
I would consider it to be a "high-level library".

The danger I see in writing our own CodeDom is that we may
essentially end up building our own compiler in C#.  There are
already too many C# compilers - we don't need another.

Any volunteers to try to adapt the Mono implementation
for use in pnetlib?
