nice SoC, some valuable observations.

I've been looking into .Net internals some more as well. The more I 
think about this, the more I believe what we are basically trying to do 
is add everything from the .Net framework but C# and the class library 
to java.

The obvious thing we should address is "why not just use .Net?"

An answer might be "because we need to do this in an existing java 

If that is the sole reason, we might still benefit from compatibility 
with at least the concepts of .Net. IOW, Copy the .Net semantics on the 
things you mentioned, 1-to-1, where applicable. Disregarding the shared 
assembly concept for now (which is add-on extra work), we could copy 
over versioning scheme, configuration layout & general format, location, 
tool setup and typical usage, the configuration override and extension 

why not just use .Net?
