Ideally, I'd like to see the mono version of nunit that we build kept in
synch with the one that you guys are building. So please let us know of
changes that you think should be reflected back to NUnit.

make sense as our main target is still 1.1 assemblies

you mean installed in the GAC ?

if so what happens when 2.0 compiled assemblies overwrites the
assemblies compiled with 1.1 (same name, version# and public key) ?

does the 1.1 (default) profile still works ?

I think the real question is "is it working ?", i.e. have you tested
this on the mcs tree and ensure every test target are still working ?
