Last I heard, Babbage was trying to recruit volunteer labor to build a
bytecode verifier so the server-side could be safely scripted in C#.

I think we all can agree that a Windows-only viewer is unacceptable.
And that's a fundamental weakness of embracing MSFT tech. Imagine if
LL had to run the grid on licensed Windows servers to get acceptable
performance...not that they're getting it now, and the Mono LSL
implementation is a big part of that problem.
