   With Mono (and GNOME) the rules of politeness have always been
`Please do not commit code that breaks the tree'.  If you want to
experiment, toy, research you should do that in your copy of the
tree.  When your research ideas are solid, then you can commit.  But
it is not productive to have everyone's code breaking all the time.

   Even things like the JIT engine (which began as a prototype, hence
the name `testjit') has to compile all the time, because otherwise we
are just wasting the time of other people. 

   I suggest that if you want to discuss ideas on how to move Gtk#, we
use the mailing list to discuss those issues and move on that
direction.  Mike is used to the way we work in the GNOME CVS which is:
do not commit broken code.  Lets respect that desire of him.
