Just my 2p ... X11 or BSD, or even LGPL are acceptable licenses (from my
point of view - YMMV:) However, I do agree that a neutral CVS is a good
but it looks like the code has unfortunatly appeared to have forked.

The world needs more test suites, definately.


Another place that you can find docs on JScript (WSH variant) is :
www.microsoft.com/scripting - It might be interesting to be able to
support WSH in some fashion perhaps as a seperate app, that communicates
via whatever COM/Activex/whatever Interface that M$ .NET apps do.

I know there is probably a better way to implement scripting in .NET
but programmers like the familiarity of stable APIs
I refer to the MSScriptControl.ScriptControlClass as implemented by the
autogenerated assembly Interop.MSScriptControl.dll
