I am. 

Now, I am  aware that Portable.NET and Mono have different goals as far as 
the compilers are concerned, but the runtime and class libraries, our goals
are *the same* and we are duplicating effort.

I know that attempts to get Mono and dotGNU Portable.NET to work together
on the compiler and other tools like IL DASM were abortive, and won't
happen, but on the JITter (which can only be written in C, for both Mono
and P.Net) and the classes (c#, invoking native libs by PInvoke) it seems
to me vital the P.Net and Mono work together.

Anything else would be a dangerous duplication of effort.
