[Mono-dev] What about renaming corlib to mscorlib and MWF to SWF?

I think that we use the name corlib instead of mscorlib because MS stands 
for Microsoft and we want to avoid using that name. But note that ECMA specs 
use the name mscorlib.

The name Managed.Windows.Forms is used because there was and old, Winw based 
System.Windows.Forms implementation and the current on should have a 
different name back then.

All other Class Library assemblies have a directory with the same name as 
the assembly.

I think that we should rename these two directories to match the assembly 
name before Mono 1.2 is released.
