DLR

Very cool project you have here, thanks for sharing it. Very concise implementation too, impressive. I presume that at some point your team probably evaluated, and rejected, implementing Jint via the DLR - I was curious what reasons influenced that decision, and what your thoughts would be on a port if your project that targeted the DLR?

Targeting the DLR cas actually not the first intent, but after some search, it seems it might be an extension point. The original goal was to provide an interpreter to the current runtime, which means .NET 2.0 at least. But the Jint bits could be used to implement JavaScript on the DLR, but for the moment I target to deviler the ECMAScript 3.0 full implementation, then ECS5 and why not the DLR then.

DLR uses Emit, so current Jint implementation is preferable.
