- Optimizations for embedded use. Currently the Java for ARM I've been
using is faster than Mono, especially startup time is very much
faster with Java.
- Continuations and microthreads. This is actually something that I've
been hacking together, and I even managed to get something running.
Continuations with native code and microthreads and scheduler with C#.
- More support for dynamic languages. Perhaps there's an unsafe way (read:
you have to know what you are doing) to unload types. Or perhaps a
modified mcs could generate code for dynamic methods. Or something else I
haven't thought about =).
Of course the latter two mentioned things break CLI-standard compliance...
