API from NET 2.0 (Microsoft.Build.*) isn't considered stable? Code that
is currently in SVN was obsoleted by new NET 2.0 release and it needs
some changes. There is absolutely no compatibility between these two
versions (from Beta 2 and 2.0).
I added some code to new Mono.XBuild namespaces. I think that something
of it can also change to make it work with 2.0 Microsoft.Build.
