As far as I know regarding Visual Studio, WCT is performed only on deploy in
selected build configuration, and is not during local debug.

Part of my problem may be in my understanding of Web.config transformations
too. If MonoDevelop is in "debug" configuration for the project, does it not
first include Web.config, then apply Web.Debug.config, or is that
transformation only done by xsp/mod_mono when a site is deployed? i.e. are
transformations applied when merely writing code in MonoDevelop?
