Subject Re: JUniversal for Automated Java -> C# translation?

Itamar -- Yup! I thought it'd be worth exploring what JUniversal can do in
addition to our existing toolset. IMO, it'd be nice to settle on a single
process that gets us through the major of the work, vs jumping around
between a lot of tools.
