You know pacman uses a library backend called libalpm you could create
bindings to C# for, to ease your development? I do not think it would be
against your goal as the Linux way is to reuse existing code and libraries
wherever possible - thus it would prove your thesis even further and show
that C# is capable to adhere to this philosophy aswell.
It could also be useful for others wanting to make use of libalpm with C# if
you released your bindings. Ask not what Linux can do for you but what you
can do for Linux! ;-)
(Or, if you really wish to code everything from scratch in C#, it would also
be neat if you implement it like pacman with a backend library and a frontend
client, and open source'd it.)
Just my two cents.
