We would need to be able to determine the locations of the 1.01 and 2.01
releases, and NAnt users would be able to switch between these target
frameworks using 'mono-1.0' and 'mono-2.0' identifier (or they could set-
up their own set of identifiers in the NAnt app config).
Can we come to a solution that we can all agree on ?

+Let me correct myself : I just noticed that the new installer now
+creates registry entries in HKLM\Novell\Mono. Is there any chance
+this will change again in the near future, as we really need to be
+able to rely on this.
+It would also be great if you could help us think about a way to
+determine the location of the latest update for a given major
+An option could be to create a separate registry value containing
+the latest installed (bug fix) version for a given major release
+HKLM\Novell\Mono\CLRv1.0 (REG_SZ) 1.01
+HKLM\Novell\Mono\CLRv2.0 (REG_SZ) 2.07
+These values would then only be updated when installing bug fix
+releases for a given major release.
+I know there's already a DefaultCLR registry value, but I don't
+think we can use that as that value will probably be updated when a
+new major release is installed.
