Actually it's not off-topic. They already ported their STL to that
version of Managed C++. I can imagine some people may want to run
their boost programs too. I don't think it would be even that hard...
Think of it as just another C++ platform. The new Managed C++ is just
as on-topic here as Metrowerks 8 on OS X or Intel C++ on Itanium :).
