Sit down and have a good look at how the metadata and assemblies work esp object lifetime mangement. Check how interop works. Calculate C#/.NET development costs.
It is a good idea for distributed apps whoever it's from. Miguel happens to be an excellent programmer who can recognise a good idea when he sees it.
