[Mono-dev] Retargetable issues

This switch refers to the capability of assembly "A" of running in .Net
Desktop and .Net Compact frameworks.

This has implications at the corlib and runtime levels.

As far as I know mono does not target the Compact Framework (CF) therefore
the retargetable flag does not work

Since CF is a subset of Desktop Framework (DF) you *should* be able to
recompile the assembly as DF and run under mono.

Maybe this is too much of a hassle, I do not know.
