Well, the problem of using the .NET versioning numbers for our
products, is that we are tied to their versions.

So major upgrades to Mono would be Mono 1.1.1 instead of a Mono 2.0 to
identify that.

Am at this point convinced that Mono needs to follow its own version
scheme, and that we should identify on each release what APIs are
