Perhaps this is one of those times? I don't wish to negate the valiant 
efforts of those trying to resolve the licensing issues, but I think 
that as an aside, maybe it'd be worthwhile to start a class library 
project all of our own? In time, if the licensing issues with other 
projects were resolved, then there would be nothing to stop us trying to 
integrate the best of all worlds, and trying to combine all the 
available classlib offerings to provide one open-source free 
implementation under the Harmony banner.

I for one haven't had any exposure to the source code of any of the 
classlib projects out there currently, I guess that would be a factor in 
who would be able to contribute to a new classlib codebase... The real 
question though is there any interest in this? Is there anyone else on 
this list who like me is itching to write and contribute some new code 
to the project, and who would be interested in starting to implement the 
class libraries? :-)

Thoughts, comments welcome.
