I'm guessing certain aspects are already easier to implement than WinForms
(due to things like the dispatcher replacing the message pump), but really,
no one expects Mono to be able to manage it. Most of us are more worried
about whether Mono would actually take on the task than we are about whether
or not it can be done.

Effectively Mono would be stuck at 2.0 while .NET is at 3.0, and "3.5"
onward would be incomplete (like I wrote in the petition, the "3" would be
missing). Even if that's not the truth about 3.5+, it will be the
perception, and it will hurt Mono, which in turn will hurt .NET.

So my question is this: will you do .NET 3.0?
