We are now trying to reduce the number of gratuitous differences between
mcs and gmcs (whitespace used to be a major cause of merge conflicts
when syncing mcs changes to gmcs).  It may eventually allow us to use a
common codebase with conditionals.  The following link alludes to some
of the further work necessary


Maybe, then we coud have generics-only code inside #if NET_2_0 guards.
