It's probably not a huge work to make it compatible with VB.NET.
However, the CSHTML5 compiler automatically generates some C# code during the compilation process, and we should change the compiler to generate VB.NET code instead. For example, XAML files are converted into C# files (you can see them for example if you open "obj/Debug/MainPage.g.cs"), serialization assemblies are generated as C# files, and WCF Web Services ("Reference.cs") are expected to be C# files by the compiler.
