The corcompare tools have recently been improved to signal more mismatches
between Mono and MS.NET (eg. types not marked serializable, mismatches
between the layout, or charset, mismatches in return types of methods, ...).

Now, the reason why the currently deployed class status pages show that many
errors is :

- the class status pages were not built for the system libraries built from
cvs, meaning lots of issues have been fixed since.
- mcs always emits events with a specialname attribute, which causes a
mismatch (error) for all events (bug #60459)
- there was an issue in System.Double which caused a mismatch between the MS
and Mono string representation of a double.  This was fixed since.
