What about some specifications for .Net (Transaction,
Pooling, Object Management) like the ones which exist
for Java? Thus, efforts could be done inside Mono
and/or outside of it but in a common direction. I see
something like that with JBOSS that uses servlets from
TomCat, Jetty or Transactions from Tyrex xml from
xerces, xslt from xalan etc, etc and also, they are
*choices* among a big gamma of possibilities.

To me it is the best way. The top 1 argument is
because it is Open Source. :)

Sure! IMHO, .Net opens a lot of possibilities for open
source projects and this could be used in the
construction of a .Net app server with a lot of

My $2 cents.
