CSharp2 isn't that much different compared to CSharp, but yes, it is

The newest features C# 4 don't look useful to me for basing a runtime
on. Sam Harwell may have a different opinion, as he is working on a
CSharp3 variant, which will have some runtime dependencies for .NET 3.5.
So killing CSharp2 won't be possible for now, although one could create
a special .NET 2-CSharp3 runtime, where the missing libraries are taken
