RE: bytecode unification for scripting (and other!) languages

Well, by my rhetoric if the users want .NET
integration, they should have it.  

Its worth noting that many of the languages that
supposedly run on the .NET framework have very
immature implementations.  This is ok 'cause .NET is
still in Beta.  It is also worth noting that the ML
and Haskell compilers both come from Microsoft
Research.  If anyone on this list wants a job in
Cambridge perhaps they should write the PLT .NET
compiler (-:.  There is a document at ActiveState that
describes their difficulties getting their Perl and
Python compilers to work.  The document is in Word,
and amusingly causes Word to crash - had to read it in

A quick straw poll: who on this list is interested in
compilers?  One count for me.
