ok, sorry I couldn't be of more help - I am never sure if everyone else has
the same "crack addiction" that I have about all news openmoko-related.  I
check a few times a day :)

I am not a C# (or really C-anything developer), so while I understand the
basic details of your response - I have never had to do anything like that
- sounds like an ugly integration though.  The abstraction you propose in
your follow-up email sounds like a good way to manage it though.

The benefit of using C# is to run code developed for WM?

I don't know much about it as a language except that it was originally
(IIRC) developed for windows (by MS?)

I hope you don't mind, but I am copying the list on this - it might be
educational to more than me.
