Once the project is completed, I propose using the Native Image Generator (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6t9t5wcf(v=vs.80).aspx) to create a native executable. I feel this will improve speed and so it is something we should explore.

Interesting, i've added a note about this to research it a bit more.

NGEN can be good thing to explore but do not expect the performance boost too much. .NET is using JIT (Just-In Time) compiler to create native code as the .NET program run. The plus side about JIT is that it compiles more optimize code because JIT know what CPU does user uses.
