Ahh, do not worry. I didn't mean you must demand stable use. As it
is written on our wiki, olive is a workplace for unstable stuff,
mostly for .NET 3.0 and later, and hence it cannot be stable by
its nature. When we hack olive, we make some or many changes in
mono (mostly class libs), and we cannot wait for its release for,
say, half a year.
Having said that, since there isn't a lot of changes in olive and
mono in sync lately, such mismatches between olive trunk and mono
release wouldn't likely to happen once the next 2.0 beta release
