- I had to go through a similar process when porting Brail from Boo to C#. I have to say that the code afterward has a lot more cruft than before.
- Scott is making a reference to my Boo.Reflector project, I will try to update it to Reflector 5.0, but I can't make any promises. Getting coherent code is not a trivial task, and there are a lot of smarts that went into the C#/VB langauges in Reflector to make it look seemless.
The most important point, though, is about Scott's comment regarding Mono's licensing:
Mono is not GPL'ed. It uses several licenses over several components, but only the compiler itself is GPL'ed. You can see the details here, but basically, the libraries (including Mono.Security) comes freely, with no strings attached (MIT X11 licenses, to whom it may concern).
