That tool will look at your .NET code and tell you if it's using anything
that Mono doesn't support (I don't think it's up-to-date for Mono 3.0
though). It doesn't actually do any changes to your code, it only analyses

I compile the code for my site on Windows and deploy it to a Debian Linux
box. Works fine as long as you don't use anything Mono doesn't support
(that's where MoMA comes in handy). Going the other way (Mono ->
Microsoft.NET) should be even easier as you can probably view Mono's
runtime as a subset of Microsoft.NET - You generally won't find things in
the Mono class libraries that aren't in Microsoft.NET :)
