           Summary: vbnc: By default includes /r:SWF but not System.Drawing
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: Basic

By default vbnc references of System.Windows.Forms, but not System.Drawing. 
Any standard WinForms app will use System.Drawing.Size and System.Drawing.Point
and thus will need the user to add an explicit assembly reference to
System.Drawing.  It should be added to the default set.

Note the default set in MSFT is apparently nearly thirty long (vbc.rsp), so
there may be some 'user astonishment' when coming from MSFT and they expect to
just type "vbnc <files>.vb" for projects using lots of FCL features.  On the
other hand gmcs/mcs don't reference many of the FCL asemblies by default.
