If it is dropped, would it be technically possible for distributions (and
users) to instead use official Npgsql 1.0, with assembly binding directives so
that is redirected to the true Npgsql 1.0, if a recompile isn't
possible? Npgsql 2.0-series is already at, which would then _not_ be
redirected of course. (I'm a bit foggy on exactly how assembly redirecting
works, and of course this assumes that the API really is similar enough to be

If it is infeasible to drop it for Mono 3.0, could all public API be marked
deprecated, with encouragement to use the official version instead?

I suppose there needs to be some agreement about if having it in Mono is a
problem, or if it's only me that thinks so.
