[Mono-dev] Generic type naming

My apologies if I am dredging up an issue that has already been resolved and
put to rest, but my curiosity compels me to do so.


I have noticed that Mono's algorithms for providing names to specific
generic types is significantly different to that of Microsoft's
implementation of .Net. Where Microsoft's implementation usually has lots of
fancy angle brackets and full type listings of the arguments, Mono often has
weird accent marks and numbers.


Is this difference between the two implementations the result of an
architectural decision, developer laziness (hey, the best developers are all
a bit lazy, right?), or of something in between the two extremes?
