[Mono-list] IKVM+Rhino=JS for mono?

It occurred to me that it might be possible to run Rhino under IKVM to 
get a quick boost into a mature ECMAScript implementation for Mono. 
Presumably, with a couple of tweaks to ignore the "cli." prefix that 
IKVM inserts for .NET classes, it would do most of what's required for 
the .NET platform's JavaScript.

I have no time or knowledge to pursue this myself, but I'm throwing the 
idea out there in case anyone wants to run with it. It might be possible 
to get Rhino+IKVM to production quality quicker than the from-scratch 
ECMAScript implementation that's being worked on at the moment. Worst 
case, we end up with two high-quality ECMAScript implementations to 
choose between :)
