[Mono-devel-list] Classes from System.Drawing namespace

I honestly don't know if these classes are inside mono yet or not, but I 
do want to say that you can actually get completely cross-platform 
graphical functionality like this using SDLDotNet 
(http://cs-sdl.sourceforge.net/). It introduces one more dependancy, but 
that dependancy is minor, IMHO.

As a matter of fact, /if/ mono does not yet have these drawing classes, I 
would wager they could be implimented pretty easily using something like 
a wrapper around SDLDotNet.
