Sure. Any useful fast path makes sense. You can also
try to use the C translation and put a C# transformation
on top of it, or modify it. If that leads to a C# code
generator for the project, it will be a win.
Or you do a direct manual thing first, to get things flying.
After all, having more supported target engines and more
target languages is good for the project.

No problem if we start with IronicPython. :-)
