Hi Rafael,
     Thanks for your response.  Since Mono will run MSIL, and the false JDK
is MSIL, will not Mono run the false JDK?

For that to happen, someone has to implement the false JDK, that Visual J#
uses. I say false, because it has all the old-versioned JDK Classes, but is
MSIL code, not Java Bytecodes. No one volunteered until now for that task,
or opened a parallel project to that end.
