+Bug#: 51071
+Product: Mono/Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Wishlist
+Component: System.XML
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: System.Xml.dll should be called System.XML.dll
+In MS .NET, the assembly is called System.XML.dll (even though the
+namespace is System.Xml).
+This causes problems in SML.NET
+because the default configuration specifically looks for System.XML.dll,
+which looses on case-sensitive unix filesystems.
+The name that Mono has chosen may be more sensible given that the namespace
+is System.Xml, but is that reason enough to be incompatible?
