        So, I don't think you are working with the Bonobo team ?. You are
*using* Bonobo. What we're talking about is not DotGNU *using* Mono
libs -- but a Mono DotGNU partnership project (as I see it).

        We can use Mono libs -- like you use Bonobo, but unlike Bonobo
and GnomeDB, DotGNU and Mono are working on the same stuff -- C# libs.

        The Control aspect is not the point -- It's about sharing work, 
responsibility and accountability. For example , how to make sure
work in the future will not be duplicated, how to implement the 
Registry classes in GNU/Linux, how to implement the "PassportIdentity"

        The *point* !. Thanks.

        All I want to say is that there should be "cooperation" , not 
class swapping. We should discuss issues rather than know them by 


PS: We just had a MS.NET demonstration at college -- those guys will
    do anything to get the whole internet guid'd (pun intended) into 
    their network.

Rogdrigo: I *really* liked reading this mail. this is the kind of
          postive attitude that is needed for co-operation.
