I think this could speed up the adoption of Erlang by adding direct access  
to a huge amount of libraries.

This is a good middle term research projet, I think. It could be an  
extension of Hipe, generating .net bytecode instead of native code ? I do  
not know however if the execution approach of .net bytecode fits well with  
Erlang one.

It could be interesting to see how it fits with Microsoft Messaging system  
called Indigo.
