Hey guys,

Duncan and I have talked a bit about resolving assemblies for monop. For

a quick outline of a class:

[benm at omega benm]$ monop string
public sealed class String : ICloneable, IComparable, IConvertible,
System.Collections.IEnumerable {
    public String (Char* value);
    public String (Char* value, Int32 startIndex, Int32 length);

[benm at omega benm]$ monop arraylist
public class ArrayList : ICloneable, ICollection, IEnumerable, IList {
    public ArrayList ();
    public ArrayList (ICollection c);
    public ArrayList (int initialCapacity);

One of the many uses of monop is to browse the gtk# classes. However,
with the GAC, it is very hard to look at gtk-sharp.dll. Also, with a new
version of gtk# being parallel installed with 1.0, I am not sure how we
choose which one to use.

I am wondering if I can get advice for:
      * What I need to do to make it easier for users to browse gtk#
        assemblies especially, but also other assemblies that use all of
        the versioning features we have provided
      * How to cope with || installs?
      * Any other things that I need to add to monop to cope with the
