I like C# quite a bit, it's the nicest language I've used for developing 
Windows apps.

If there was an open-source compiler that could compile to native code, 
for all the major CPU architectures, I wouldn't rule it out. However, I 
don't think we want to mandate having to install mono on a build host 
just to run nALFS2, that would be quite a burden (although mono's 
runtime could be smaller than I'm expecting, I've not looked at it).
