[DotGNU]Re: [Mono-devel-list] Assembly versioning

The feedback from the DotGNU people is that because their System.Xml, et. al., 
includes Whidbey extensions, the assemblies should have version 1.2.X.Y (not 
sure what X and Y are).

Jackson gave me the impression that the .NET runtime partly ignores version 
numbering for System.*, as a special case.

I am hoping that this will lead to a workable solution that permits 
interoperability between CLI implementations. I don't have access to .NET, so 
I'm not going to be able to do a lot of experimentation on my own here.
