Let's move Gtk.HTML into a separate assembly (gtkhtml-sharp.dll
probably) and leave the namespace as Gtk.  There's precedent for this
approach in the whole System split between System.dll and corlib.dll

The problem will be with the generator.  Right now, it targets a
directory based on namespace.  We could easily enhance it to support an
assembly tag in the XML and add some parser magic to create the tag.

Let me know if I can clarify any of the above.
