I just got it to build with cygwin, xsp works, looks like it's time to dig
in. Right now I'm planning on using a Windows box to write the .NET 2.0 unit
tests and a OpenSuse Linux box to actually test the Mono implementation
(when the time comes).

One final question before I dig in: On a Linux machine, Is is appropriate to
use apache+mod_mono to test web assemblies, or should XSP always be used?

Thanks a lot for bearing with me as I come up to speed on how things work
around here.
