These are fabulous news!  Absolutely fabulous!

We had seen that code base, and thought that it would be really really
nice to reuse Rhino on the .NET Framework.  Our plan was `We will have
to build our Java compiler/translator to make it work'.

But I am really glad that you have decided to go that way.  Once that
works, it could be used to implement a JavaScript compiler ;-)
