This is a *fantastic* project;   

Please, please *please* write a full tutorial on how the whole setup
works, it could be called `dissecting a complete Mono Desktop
application'.  It is very important for people to have this sort of

For now, if you have a full autoconf/automake setup, that is fine, today
we can assume most people know it, but moving forward, we would probably
implement MSBuild.
