Let me put another possibility on the table. Why not base the new
VB.NET compiler on the Boo infrastructure?

This would not require a fork at all but improvements and refactorings
to a shared code base on a ongoing basis. There are already two
languages based on the infrastructure (boo itself and the scripting
language for the Unity Game Engine - UnityScript).

I'd love to see that collaborative development happening.
