I do not speak for Linden, you should direct these questions at
them, but here are some guesses:

Yes, your LSL code now gets JITed using Mono instead of being

They can keep doing it in the same way; My understanding is that you
only need to check a checkbox in the SecondLife viewer, and your LSL
script will be executed with Mono instead of the current LSL engine.

Currently only LSL is supported; I believe they plan on opening up
SecondLife to new languages in the future.

Its an internal change that offers more speed for now; More features
will be available in the future.
