    From DouglasH's link of Eric Meijer's Xtech 2007 paper:

    On both the client and the server, we do not assume the existence of a native .NET runtime. Instead we will target any available existing runtime.

    Umm, wow!  Is this Nikhil Kothari's Script# he's talking about, or is Eric talking about something deeper than that?

    JavaScript, this generation's assembly language... Steve Yegge of Google ported Rails to JavaScript via Rhino.
