I'd really like that.
Maintaining the code should be rather easy since it's nearly a 
one-to-one translation of qwebchannel.js.
In any case, we're already reyling on QWebChannel and thus will continue 
to maintain these modules.

However, I guess upstreaming the .NET part could be difficult from a 
build system point of view: we'd need to integrate the C# toolchain into 
The python module has a similar problem: Do we install the module into 
python's site-packages directory? Or do we simply ship the files and 
leave it up to the user to integrate it with python's package management?
