I encourage you then to contribute to areas that are not covered by
Rotor or any SSCLI code.   There are many areas where this is the case,
do not feel limited.

For example, there is no open source ASP.NET implementation: this is
your chance to help on the ASP.NET2 effort.   Sure, you wont be doing
work on corlib, but hey we can take care of that.

In fact the same applies to most of the 2.x features.
