[Mono-dev] Monodoc engine crashes um uncompressed help, stopping MD code completion

It happens when some, probably newer, methods to extract pieces of xml
are called and the base class assumes a zipfile is present. As I said,
when MD is regenerating the code completion database it uses such

If it is something to keep, probably some refactoring of the
inheritance tree is in order, maybe spawning to middle classes for
zipfile/ uncompressed families of leaf classes.

Can't dig in it just now... Sorry
