csdoc2stub will require XML input which is essentially from the ECMA
All.xml files. This format is not used by MS.NET , so cannot be misused
as a decompiler.

Also I think csdoc is a much better option because there is no direct 
binary handling !.

May I suggest that we build a C# program which uses Reflection for this ?.
That would solve a lot of issues related to "reverse-engineering" claims.
Running the APP on various runtimes would provide the All.xml file rather
than binary processing.

The need for this program is to produce a better pnetlib-status output 
rather than for stubbing. Pnetlib-status needs a new non-Ecma-all.xml to
give a true picture of what's missing.

I'll give it a shot , and if it's not done by the time you wake up .. you
can take it off me .
