Hi Ian,One possibility would be to write a CLR front-end (probably similar in
scope to the gcj's java bytecode front-end). That way you could use
existing (C#,C++,VB...) --> CLR compilers. This would kill the entire
.NET bird with one stone.

Do you think it can be broken down? My understanding of compilers is very
narrow (although I expect to improve it at some point).
Maybe a subset of the syntax could be defined by a set of test cases?
Since there is perhaps a larger effort required to implement the runtime
support you would still have a lot of work to do after the basic
compiler was implemented.
