Remember to run it in both pnet/cscc/csharp and pnet/codegen/ dirs :)

1235 of the errors in mscorlib.dll compilation are due to one single bug
which can be compensated for by rearranging the Makefile (theoretically).

It already works most of the time -- after you put in a small 
hack in ILNode_ToConst analysis. ie if you recieve a constant
on ILEvalConst , replace and voila !. But first we've got to
make ILEvalConst work for every case in the book :) .

We had a tough decision to make about that. Either Rhys would
spent half the week documenting stuff or he would code stuff.

Anyway , most of our "knowledge" is dredged out from weekly
pnet meetings held at #dotgnu. I hope that
you have already recieved the "official" reminder.

Not exactly , I think the codegen has lots of parts missing
to it ?. Especially the JVM ouput section .
