Since the compiler is written in C#, we are using the only existing C#
compiler available to generate CIL executables.

We will run the CIL executable with the `mono' virtual machine (that
is being developed in parallel).

Yes.  But currently we do not have a self hosting environment to
develop classes nor the compiler.
