I ran into a problem building something:

** (/usr/lib/mono/1.0/mcs.exe:11383): WARNING **: Could not find assembly System.Web, references from /usr/lib/mono/1.0/System.Runtime.Remoting.dll (assemblyref_index=3)
     Major/Minor: 1,0
     Build:       5000,0
     Token:       b03f5f7f11d50a3a

and as it turns out, I don't have a System.Web assembly installed.

It's not obvious what package contains that assembly, since I don't see
"mono-web" or whatever.  It would be a great hack to add special RPM
dependency tokens for assemblies, similar to what they do with regular
ELF libraries and perl packages.  So you'd have "mono(System.Web)" or
something that the appropriate package would provide and that things
could depend on instead of a package name.

I figured out it was in the mono-web-forms package, so the mono-remoting
package needs to depend on mono-web-forms.
