Would this mean the default namespace for packages will become 'mono-' ?

So eg. instead of gtk-sharp, mono-gtk ?

I'd personally love it if other mono/C# libraries fit in the same 
namespace. Currently different projects are doing it differently.
(If you look at the different python packages using different naming 
schemes and casing, that's something I'd like to prevent.)

What would be the best way to get the dependencies for each of these 
packages automatically ? (especially the .dll files)
