You can subscribe at,
but if you send a message to address@hidden, I'll approve the post.

Let me put a little of context in an out-of-context quote, though.

MCS is currently an executable, but it would take little effort in
converting it to a library that could be reused from inside another one.
The AppDomain bit is only a technicality that depends on how MCS is
currently coded and it's not relevant to the discussion.

What miguel didn't say in this mail, but said in other mails on the same
topic, is that he would change the license of MCS from GPL to GPL +
linking exception (I think the same kind of exception pnetlib uses) to 
allow it's use in our corlib library (if it's actually needed: it
appears, though, that the interface doesn't require the use of the
compiler in the library).
Of course, you may ask miguel for confirmation, but I guess he's also
tired of having to reply to issues raised by people that try to spread
misinformation instead of furthering freedom and code.
