I've got a more upto date codebase on

The new code does some nice stuff like `csharp.System_String("hello")'
and autoinitializes the VM when you do an `import csharp'. 

I have left it for good since it is tough to map all the signature types
needed for pnet (ie stuff like [i,[vSystem.Int32,oSystem.String etc...)

In my opinion the effort has brought to surface the obvious issues in 
scripting IL via another VM . This also has problems when ilrun starts
supporting threads. 

Rhys was talking about another angle of approach we may have , deeper
down into the VM level. Mapping ILClass into an equivalent structure
in Ruby. I can't be sure of this , as I entered during the middle of 
this conversation.

The first scripting language we should focus on is typically Scheme,
as it can be done using C# as a programming language. I would suggest
that someone port something like Jscheme to C#. I have seen a port , 
but it was a quick and dirty port with 'Object's and typecasts scattered 
all along it.

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
