Dear Ashwin-

     It is my personal view that a proprietary language such as C#
should not be used for research purposes, since it limits in a
practical sense the applicability of new ideas and methods.
     Besides, from all the reviews I've read, C# is nothing but
Microsoft's atempt to divert attention from JAVA, being a language
with no substantial design inovation.
     Well, we've seen __that__ before...
