[Mono-list] Perl.NET on MONO?

What Activestate developed for Perl (and Python iirc) was a compiler that
targeted the .NET platform, that is it would take Perl or Python code and
compile it into CIL. That is useful, but a lot of work to get right
(Activestate just developed prototypes, again iirc) and may break if you
have Perl code that depends on thirdparty C-libraries, etc.
If you have an existing Perl codebase, it is probably easier to embed the
Mono runtime in Perl, and extend your code base 'from the inside', just like
this code from Paolo does:

Best regards
