	Yes, we are both focussing on the same parts. ie compiler , runtime
libs... But due to some unfortunate initial conflicts (read flame wars),
we sort of split our ways. We'll have to make the top brass talk about

	Actually DotGNU has decided to use the MONO libs for the NON-ECMA
portions of the code . Like GTK#, System.Windows.* assembly etc.

	Also about working together , I'm keeping an open mind.
