Does CodeDOM give us a location for system compilers as well as for the 
tasks in the framework sdk - gacutil, resgen etc ? note that the 
framework sdk tools are in a different location from system compilers ( 
csc etc ) on ms .net installations.  I don't think so. To be honest I'd 
rather prompt the user at install time with a list of available 
frameworks. This is what most java ide's do btw. That would entail 
making an installer but thats another issue.

thats what I figured. btw can anyone give me an indication of the scope 
of the fixes needed for the mono regex classes ? I did a quick search in 
bugzilla but didn't find anything. If its not that huge of a job I'd 
rather fix the problem at its source than spend the time making 
workarounds everywhere we're currently using regex's.
