Trying to do a fork of mono is a very bad idea: any feature that may be
needed to run mono on palmos5 is probably a good feature that we want in
mono anyway (like, reducing memory usage, discarding jitted methods that
have not been used for a while, more complete ARM porting etc.).
So, instead of needlessly splitting the community, discussions about the
port should happen on this list.
