[Mono-list] Mono fitness for ircd project

Not sure what kind of traffic your ircd needs to support, but C# likely
won't keep up with anything high volume. I tried at one point to write
an irc services daemon using Java and it didn't work out very well.

FYI, I am a pretty competent irc programmer having worked on ircu
(http://freshmeat.net/projects/ircu/?topic_id=24), HybServ
(http://www.efnet.org/software/services/hybserv/), and was the founding
programmer of GamesNET Services (http://www.gamesnet.net/services.php).
