Yes, I agree with Brad. Those are two different
animals. It could be bug free but only 80%-90%
compatible with Microsoft or ECMA .NET behavior. Maybe
in the future will be needed a 'Compatibility Team'.

*Roughly* similar to what IBM did when they ported to
Java its "San Francisco" Financial framework, I also
like the history and archeology of SW projects. They
created a Performance team along with the Design &
Development team. With the performance team focused on
that, they shared their recommendations and
discoveries with other teams, that's waaay back in the
early Java days.
