Yes. Rich, Gopal, minddog,  and many others are two examples of the
great young and motivatd people who you meet on pnet. It is one of the
reasons why I think this project is great.

Rewrites suck. Automatic and safe Code migration Rulz.

I think the guy was talking about a conversion tool, not some rewrite

I can think of a bunch of C could that would benefit from the C#
abstraction layers, why cannot it be mixed in with pnet/C

Pnet could benefit from an Inline mechanisim for defining snippets of
code to be compiled by a different compiler.
