To answer your final question (does Mono support IsolatedStorage), Mono
does have an implementation.
I won't make any claims to it being the best and most tested
implementation known to man, but it should be enough to get you going.
I hope. (I coded it up in a day; it allows at least one example from
"Programming C#" to compile & run. Famous last words?)
