Wow, what a coincidence (just saw this now). I would talk to @pelegri about this.

 

I was talking with him yesterday about someone getting Mono to compile on the DebAlpha (I'm a C# dev so I'm really happy about that). I mentioned that it would be cool to try and get the Mono JIT to work (native, not interpret) and possibly to make a plugin for the browser so something like Moonlight could run.

 

He told me that the BlackBerry JavaScriptCore package used by the Webkit browser does native JIT (as in, it compiles the javascript code to ARM) and doesn't need any additional permissions to do that.

 

When I asked about the plugin, he said that currently there is nothing for that but gave me two names to contact. One was the "Browser Tech Lead" and the other was "VP of Web" and said that they could help adding plugin support.

 

So if you are willing, as I don't have the time right now, you could probably help get plugin support added the the browser and later add Moonlight support.

 

BTW, the guy who got Mono to compile is @rockpiper. He posted a picture of it and @BlackBerryDev retweeted it.
