[Mono-list] Announce: A .NET assembly -> native code generati
on tool (ala ngen for MONO)

Very interesting. One of the things that's always hurt Java
(especially GUIs) is that all the work to JIT programs is never
saved, everytime you start a program, it and all the runtime libraries
it uses are reJIT'd everytime. Apple has supposedly done something in
this area but I was never able to find any real details.
One would think that if the VM runtime was smart about saving
JIT work then it would have more time to do a better job optimizing
