[Mono-dev] mod_mono and mod_rewrite

I've been playing with mod_mono for a few days now, and it's pretty awesome being able
to write ASP.NET code and run it on a linux machine.

However, I wish it was a bit more PHP-like in the way it looks for code files to execute.
I've studied and implemented the configuration recommended by the AutoHosting page:

But mod_mono doesn't seem flexible enough to fit into my extremely dynamic development
hosting environment. With PHP and mod_rewrite, I can do amazing things where a URL like
"jdg-tag.example.com" is mapped on the fly to the physical dir "~jdg/public_html-tag",
and developers can create their own ~/public_html-* dirs and call them automatically
without having to touch the Apache config or restart the server.

This doesn't seem possible with mod_mono yet. Am I wrong?

If not, I'd like to work on a solution. Does anyone have any arguments against doing
so or any gotchas that might make the task impossible? Any suggestions to make things
go more smoothly?
