Agreed, but there are two parts of this feature:

- Debugger and jit support
- Compiler support

I guess that debugger and jit support is really difficult, but I only
want some help with the compiler support - to be more specific, I need
to be able to 'hook' on the System.Reflection.Emit and be notified of
additions to metadata. I will handle the formating of the data and
updating of the state of MS runtime myself.

Mind that, I don't want you to do any Windows specific work. Everything
you do will be reused for Mono Edit and Continue when its time comes.

Anyone else? Could people in charge of metadata and
System.Reflection.Emit express their opinion?

I do not intent to change jit and runtime at all.

Is there really no-one who uses Windows? Don't you care about windows
developers at all? Is there no-one who wants state of the art IDE for
windows? I have spend ages developing free Windows .NET debugger and I
really would like to finish this last bit.
