Silverlight 2.0 support for Unity?

With MIX 08 coming up in a few days and lots of Silverlight 2.0 content there, has the Unity team looked at supporting Unity on Silverlight 2.0?

Nope. We're very reflection and IL Emit heavy, two features that are almost always cut when trying to trim the CLR down. I'm not saying it won't work, but we simply don't have the time or budget right now. And, to be honest, Silverlight 2.0 still has a ways to go. Anything we do now we'd just have to redo when the betas and then final version ships. I'd rather just wait until the dust settles.

Of course, you've got the code to Unity and OB2 - feel free to dig in and let us know if it is possible!

Note that PostSharp-like code generation may be an answer to these light platforms, since it would make runtime Reflection and IL-Emit useless. The next version of PostSharp should support other variants of the framework. I wonder how large is the intersection of Silverlight and IoC universes, however...
