Yes, that'd be an issue. Using it with Nemerle as a host language
makes much sense (since Nemerle is C# 4.0 ;-), so I wasn't
surprised about that, but as you guessed, System.Query(-equivalent)
part (not sure if there are other parts though) will have to be
rewritten in C#.

I guess it is possible, depending on Alejandro's code though.
