Ok, so that means I need to add a janet module to cvs at the same level 
as mcs, mono, gtk-sharp, etc (am I allowed to do that?)?

Some more questions:

* The current JANET license is GPL, is that ok? (since I think the class 
libraries are distributed under the MIT license)

* is it's name (in CVS) janet, Janet, JANET, or something else?

* is the current split in assemblies ok (PrettyPrinter.dll, 
JPrimitive.dll, JObjects.dll, etc)? or should we have a single JANET 

* do you have Steve's 'TODO' list?

* I would like to have a directory structure similar to the way it will 
eventually be put under mcs/class, so I'm thinking of the following 
directory structure, is this ok? (you need to strip the module name off 
everything for things to be put under /mcs/class):

janet/ (module)
janet/janet/ (Assembly topdir)
janet/janet/janet/ (janet itself)
janet/janet/Test/ (tests)
janet/Microsoft.JScript/ (Assembly topdir)
janet/Microsoft.JScrtip/Microsoft.JScript/ (bridge/compatility classes)
janet/Microsoft.JScrtip/Tests (tests)

* Does anyone have any pointers to reference documentation (ECMAScript 
3), test programs, etc?

* Andrew: did you have any time yet, to work on this? (since you 
mentioned you were interested to work on this)

Best regards,
