[Mono-devel-list] VB.NET runtime

Well the only thing, if at all, that has surfaced till now is
the inability of C# to convey the default arguments for
 the optional parameters. 

I am personally with Ryan and for now, my efforts are with Anirban,
Rafael, Jochen and others to entirely getting mbas to production 
ready state.

Raja earlier had a solution for introducing custom attribs that the
mcs and clr can understand. 

The biggest question that we need to ask ourselves is whether 
we need to at all at some point in time cater to cross compiling 
our MS.VB runtime libraries with csc or any other standard C# 
compiler and actually use those compiled dlls to link against our 
programs. Do you think that the later  scenario is likely ? 
Personally I know of no such scenarios.

I think we would be better off working around with what we already
have. We wouldn't be any worse but all the more better for lots of 
saved effort.
