Two summers ago, the amazing Alan McGovern created LunarEclipse a  
Silverlight designer and last summer Manuel Cerón continued the work  
on it.

The designer at the time was mostly focused on the Silverlight 1.1  
subset since we developed this on Linux and we did not have 2.0  
available at the time.

The code has not been updated for a while, so chances are, some bits  
needs to be updated to work again.

The vision in general was that LunarEclipse should provide an engine  
that could be used within a WebBrowser, so that the actual design  
happened in the browser.   This means that we could get contributions  
from Mac (and on day even Windows developers), not only Linux  

It would be a fun summer project for a motivated hacker.
