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

Currently I'm helping Cesar Lopez Nataren to port the Rhino Lexer and
Parser stuff, and then finish the JScript compiler implementation. Maybe
it would be a good idea to finish to port to C#, than trying to use them
with IKVM, since you would have to run ikvm on top on mono, and then run
rhino on top of ikvm, representing a big overhead.

By the way, if you are interested in the first approach, you could try
to port Rhino and we could finish the JScript compiler earlier.
