Okay, great. When will a JScript.NET compiler be available for Mono, do  
you think?

Right. That's understandable.

Of course. I don't have either the knowledge nor the time to do this,  
though, which is why I mentioned it on both of these lists so that someone  
who thought it was a good idea could take it on. But, maybe it isn't a  
good idea, and it's either way probably better to wait for the JScript.NET  
compiler and go down that path than to go down the Java->IKVM->CLR path.
