Yes, AFAIK the mono people are at they own risk by providing an ASP.Net
implementation and even working on a Winforms implementation (not sure about
the status of both). But something that I'd like to know if it's allright to
host code that uses Winforms API or Asp.Net API here @ apache...
Probably it is.

Thanks so far for your clarifications, it's been very helpful.
