[tz] open source .net tz compiler

I had requested Noda Time be added awhile back, but I don't see it in the tz-link.html file yet.
Also, there's TZ4Net (http://www.babiej.demon.nl/Tz4Net/main.htm) which as been around for quite awhile before either of these.
There's also http://zoneinfo.codeplex.com but it appears to not be as well maintained.
Do we really need all of these?  Probably not.  I tend to limit my recomendations to Noda Time or TZ4Net because they are stable and mature.
@Chris - is there something about your implementation that has an advantage over the existing ones?  Just curious.

At the same time, it would make sense to add Noda Time, which compiles the tz database into a format specific to Noda Time (nzd files) - but which could certainly be adapted to other formats if there were any particular desire to do so. (Basically similar to the way that Joda Time does.)

Noda Time is available under the Apache licence, and again is a C# / .NET project.

I recently wrote a compiler for the tz Database written in C#, the source code for which I have made available at:  https://github.com/appease/TimeZoneDb

 As there are no others for .net listed at http://www.iana.org/time-zones/repository/tz-link.html I thought I would reach out and ask about getting this added to the "Other tz compilers" section of the document in order to help anyone looking to consume the tz database from .net 

Best, -CD
