Thank you, this is very appreciated.

I have no objections to this, as long as it doesn't get into our way.

It will be exiting to be challenged :) hopefully you'll be able to give 
us ideas and suggestions that we weren't able to see from our 
java-oriented point of view.

Sure. I actually like this. It shows that your effort respect ours but 
at the same time doesn't try to use its visibility and name to promote 

Just one thing: be aware of the fact that even if you use our source 
code and automatically translate it into C# (I know it's possible), that 
forces you to state somewhare in your docs that you are basing your work 
on software written by the ASF, just like the license states.

That is: licenses apply also to mechanical code translations.

 From our point of view, I can tell you that as long as mutual respect 
is kept, collaboration (and design challenges!) will always be something 
that we'll look for. And can potentially make both projects better.

Good luck with your effort.
