[Mono-dev] Silverlight/Moonlight questions

Hello. Maybe this is not the correct list (mono-list, instead of 
mono-devel-list?) for this:

- As you guys have managed to make widgets for the desktop using 
Moonlight, could this be done also with Silverlight? If yes, how one 
could do that from a normal .NET application that could call a 
Silverlight widget? Would this be cross-platform if you used only 
managed code? I ask this because here[1] you can see that Silverlight is 
only understood as a browser plugin, which I think it's incorrect, given 
the first assumption.

- Is the moonlight designer already usable (it's called lunareclipse 
right?). If yes, is there some page to download tarballs with it? BTW, 
in a similar way as previous bullet: can lunareclipse be run from the 
desktop without a browser? If yes, can it be launched from Windows? Or 
from a .NET application? I ask this because, as I understand, 
Silverlight CLR runs in a Sandbox and thus it should not allow to 
write/read from disk, so then how can anyone save the contents made by 
lunareclipse in the home directory or whenever on the local computer?

Many thanks in advance,
