[Mono-dev] Missing System.Net.ServicePoint.BindIPEndPointDelegate Property

System.Net.ServicePoint.BindIPEndPointDelegate property is missing and
I desperately need it.

The property is used to specify an outbound IP address when you have
multiple addresses bound to a computer.

Here is how I'm tring to use it:
IPEndPoint BindIPEndPointCallback(ServicePoint servicePoint,
IPEndPoint remoteEndPoint, int retryCount)
	Console.WriteLine("BindIPEndpoint called");

	if (OutboundAddress == null)
		return new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Any, 0);
		return new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Parse(OutboundAddress), 0);

HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(address);
request.ServicePoint.BindIPEndPointDelegate = new
HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();

Socket.Bind appears to be implemented so this shouldn't be to a huge
deal to get working.

There's some more info on the property here:

Is there any chance that someone could get the property working in SVN
in the next week or two?  Please save me from switching to a windows
server for this project!
