That is great news Mike!  I am constantly astounded with the pace of Mono's development.  With
John's MonoDoc GUI, the rapid development of API's such as System.Xml, System.Web and dan's regex,
following so closely on the heels of self-hosting, it seem's Mono is developing at a rate far
exceeding many expectations :-)  Congratulations to everyone working so hard to make this project
