I definitely think that the best and least complicated way to go about
doing what this prospect was wanting would be to store the compiled
module or class in a blob field in mysql or sql server. When I get a
response(if I get a response) from the prospect I will post it to the
list and who ever wants to contact him then feel free to do so. All I
ask is that you indicate in your contact that I referred him to you this
way there is not a non-disclosure issue. I told Dave he was more than
welcome to the project as I don't have the time to take on another one
right now. Dave indicated that Jonathan and Jackson may want it as well.
They initially gave me a reply so I would presume they would have first
dibs at it.

Would it be an idea to store a module (compile cs file) into the 
database? That is what Progress(tm) does with Java classes for trigger
