I have a question; but before I ask it, let me just say that I am
astounded at the amount of progress that you have made on the
Mono project. It is just unbelieveable!! Keep up the great work.

Now to my question: On windows, is it possible to use the mono
runtime (either the interpreter or the jit) to run a .net program
using the microsoft libraries?

In other words, can I use say, the microsoft mscorlib.dll as the library
instead of the Mono corlib.dll to run a simple "hello world" program
using the Mono interpreter on windows?

TIA for your help.
