Sorry, I don't clearly understand the problem here.  The UIA stuff wants
a release schedule and is tied to olive because of WindowsBase?

If thats the case I can see two options, but miguel and eno should
probably weigh in:

#1: Mirror WindowsBase into the UIA trees for release
#2: Move WindowsBase into the Mono release cycle

#1 is probably preferable for now so that you can release outside of the
mono release schedule which may not conincide with yours?

Please advise,
