[Gtk-sharp-list] Support for virtual methods in SVN

Hi folks,

after quite some time the patch implementing virtual method support in 
the generator is finally in SVN.

Naturally, a patch of this size is never free of bugs, but we have to 
stabilize trunk in the upcoming months for the approaching release of 
Gtk# 2.14. That's why we'd be great for any volunteer willing to install 
Gtk# from trunk. As always, bugs can be reported at 

One of the downsides of the patch is that we had to bump up the .net 
framework to 2.0 (see previous mailing list discussion). By now, we also 
have a Mono 2.4 dependency, but that will change soon when Mike has 
fixed the autoconf stuff which will introduce a compiler flag for 
backwards compatibility. Package maintainers should always define that 
flag to avoid the 2.4 dependency.

I hope you like the patch (you can now override CellRenderer.Activate 
and many others :-)  ).
