Hello Damien,

I have not actually talked to Marek about this, but we have discussed
internally a bit what to do with System.Data.

Our current thinking is described here:


As for your specific questions:

At this point, we have only done small bits at a time.   I think we can
coordinate over email when we do some work.

I think it would be difficult, as it is a fairly large space.

  * If there are specific words of caution, or documentation regarding

We can build it as we go.

In general MOBILE drops the dependency on System.Configuration.   It is
often used with FULL_AOT (which is used both on iOS and game consoles)
which also removes support for dynamically generated code with the
Reflection.Emit API
