I think that is the idea behind "dotgnu-libs" ... DotGNU-Base would be
the "Convenience" classes of DotGNU ( any1 remember "MouseMotionAdapter" ?)
Like providing stuff like

System.Console << "HELLO WORLD";

dotgnu-libs should form the basic stuff like the pattern matching/regexp,
high precision arithmetic, 3d vector calculations , X11 wrappers , smtplib,
etc ... Like the python site-packages :-)

Also maybe/perhaps I would like somebody to hack up a standard configuration
file management library to compensate for the Win32 Registry into dgbase :-)

In general, the DG-base should be what glibc was to the standard C library.
(data structures, g_assert, g_loglevel, .......)

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
