[Mono-winforms-list] MS IL-Code

	It should be rather obvious that Mono must not take code from the MS
.NET Framework IL-Code.  We don't ever want to see Mono vulnerable to a
litigious attack by MS in the same way that SCO is attacking Linux, with a
FUD campaign, via lawsuits against IBM, Autozone, Daimler-Chrysler, etc,
over bogus claims of code plagerism.

1. This a violation of Microsoft intelectual property. This is just not
right and you will not help any open source project doing that.

2. If you are looking for PropertyGrid techniques, there are examples out
there with source code for .Net and Java. Looking at any CIL is just not the
way to go.
