[erlang-questions] Erlang & .NET

In a recent need to have a rich UI client for some of my UNIX processes, 
this week I was playing with the otp.net contribution (from jungerl) 
that implements an Erlang node in .NET.  Given limited experience with 
.NET I was quite impressed with how easy it was to get a node running in 
.NET that exchanges terms with the Erlang VM.  After making some 
improvements to otp.net I ran into a need to be able to have a shell in 
the UI to execute ad-hoc commands on a distributed node running 
elsewhere.  I understand that this can be accomplished by passing a 
string to be evaluated to the Erlang node that would do the parsing and 
execution, but I'd rather have the parser on the C# side.

This brings the question of whether anyone has an open-source 
implementation of the Erlang term parser in .NET.
