Actually, I want to try to get Mono.Framework working on the iPhone -  
it shouldn't be too bad, and may even compile out of the box. I know  
people have already gotten the standard Mono libraries and exe running  
on the iPhone, but having the framework compiled for the iPhone would  
let developers use an Obj-C/Cocoa to C#/.Net bridge to easily make  
native iPhone apps using C#.
