[TxMt] Mono or C# Bundle

I have searched the archive and do not believe this has been  
discussed in the past.

At present within the Textmate Bundle repository we have a Mono Bundle.

My gripe is that Mono is an implementation of the .NET standards, of  
which the C# language is one such language supported. (A VB.NET  
implementation is also part of Mono)

I believe that rather than having a Mono bundle we should have a C#  

Also I noticed that for the "E-TextEditor" which is a kind of Windows  
Clone of Textmate, which supports the same Bundle formats, they  
already have a C# bundle.

I am not sure who the original developer of the bundle was, but here  
is a link to be able to download the bundle:


I have tried the bundle out in Textmate with no problems.

This bundle seems more complete than the Mono bundle.

So what I am suggesting is that the C# bundle and the Mono Bundle are  
merged together under the banner of a C# bundle and ultimately the  
Mono bundle removed from the repository.

What do people think about this option, and what is the process about  
doing this?

I have a few improvements I would like to make to the bundle, but  
would prefer to wait until we have the merged base in the repository  
in which to work from, so creating patches.
