That sounds like a good idea. I do think it is important to keep the
run-time support separate from the compiler like is done for version 1.0
and 1.1 of the .NET framework. I think there is more interest in getting
VB.NET apps to run on Mono than the ability to be able to compile VB.NET
apps using mono.
