Quite so. But I am the nunit folks - or one of them - and I'm having this
issue in trying to figure out how to support mono. :-)

Most of it is gui related, and I can work around the rest. That's what I was
doing till I noticed your CVS actually contains the code that accesses the
windows registry and saw a note that seemed to indicate it builds. That's
part that's confusing me. I don't want to release an nunit for mono that has
less capability than what you guys are already doing.
