Silverlight version for F# and DLR Languages

As someone who's working with rich UI's with F# and IronRuby, I'd love to see a Silverlight version and would be willing to help out. You've done an amazing job with this library; seeing this work with both Silverlight and WPF would just make it that much more amazing, as well as make Silverlight a bit more accessible from other .NET languages.

A couple of points:
  • We can't do much with Silverlight until version 3 when they re-introduce MultiBinding. At version 3, we should consider doing a pixel shader-free version of Bling that includes only the databinding and (perhaps) physics components.
  • I'm not so excited about Silverlight since I don't go near rich web app development. As a bigger brother, WPF is more powerful and programmer friendly than Silverlight. So I would definitely prefer to have help in this area once a beta of v3 comes out.
