[Mono-devel-list] Plan for XSP Changes

Looks like a good plan to me, fwiw.

I'd like to add Just a small feature request though, if you have time. I'd 
really like to have xsp provide a configurable output for errors. Right now 
it pretty much just does console.write() for everything, making it difficult 
to catch errors, especially in the mod-mono server.
