I originally looked at Rhino as a way to quickly get a JS compiler for
I then realized that was a very bad idea. Rhino is strongly tied to
the JVM and Java classes. Trying to port it over wouldn't be as simple
as, say, porting JOrbis to C#. If your final goal is a JS runtime for
IL, then IMNSHO, Rhino is *not* the right way to go.
Also, after talking with the Mozilla people, the JS2 engine would be
issues of writing some runtime support that needs to be done.
So, if I was you, I'd pick to some other Java app to port over,
especially if your final goal is getting JS on Mono. I can give people
pointers to what one would need to look into on JS2 to get it working
