I've been looking into Ruby, it seems like it has all the stuff needed
for DotGNU scripting, and it's portable.

I believe it should be possible to make a Ruby extension library (or an
extension to the source of the interpreter) allowing it to use IL code,
the extension libs (and the interpreter) are written in C, pnet is
written in C, so as far as I can see we could make an extension that
connects to the pnet engine code and uses it to work with IL.

I'm not quite sure if the things I thought of will actually work but if 
they work we would have a seriously cool scripting system :-).
