Sure, it has no dependencies besides the base framework classes. Just
reference the compiled Mono.GetOptions.dll from VS.NET (that normally
copies the library to your output directory, and use.

If you don't have the setup to compile mono's mcs tree from SVN on
your Windows machine, I can send you a compiled dll, just tell me.

Note that in my unique "bad timing" style, I just added all those new
things a few days after release 1.1.7 was born, so it's VERY unlikely
that a packaged version of mono containing the updated library will be
available soon.

It hurts!
