That is not a problem, if the project's aim is to provide similar
functionality to users of many different tools.  The fact is that most
of the logic running under commercial JEE can likely be built using either
open JEE frameworks such as Geronimo or Glassfish, and that .NET tools are
free (while you may need to pay to run such an operating system).  Of course
that doesn't preclude at least proving up the implementation under the likes
of mono :)

I'm satisfied this isn't a showstopper to this effort.
