I don't think just removing existing ones is good, since some 1.x
applications might use MS.VB.dll and 1.x ASP.NET pages in VB. They
are truly unsupported, but people might be using them in their
live code. (New components only support 2.0, right?)

I think, having old MS.VB.dll in $prefix/mono/lib/1.0 and new
MS.VB.dll in $prefix/mono/lib/2.0 would be nicer. And mbas for
1.0, vbnc for 2.0 as well. Would the build be messed up much?
