This is very good news. Thank you so much for wanting to implement this.

When are the C# demos, that implement GTypeInterface's, going to be
thrown at us? I can't wait for this to happen!

Next to a very good IDE (like MonoDevelop), this is going to help us
build a GNOME 3.0 platform that cares about higher level programming
languages, that integrates with it, that will leverage the techniques,
framework interfaces and components that are typically used with the
programming environment.

I will definitely be one of the contributors that will be working on
bringing GNOME things closer to the .NET world, on helping Mono to be
that next generation development platform.

Lets innovate. Lets go for it. Lets make things better.

I thank you.
