[Mono-dev] Npgsql svn updated to 2.0.1

    Some bad news: we are going to have to revert to the old version of
Npgsql as the new version has two limitations:

	* It only works in the 2.0 profile.

	* It broke the API at least in the case of "version" which
	  used to return a string, and now is a System.Version.

    An option would be to add an Npgsql2 directory and rename the
assembly accordingly and add its own .pc file;   Another option is to
prepare the Npgsql tarball or zip file to contain the .pc file and
distribute that as a separate package.

    We can still distribute it from Novell for Mono users, but it might
reduce the load that we put on mcs/class (I have for a long time tried
to get this smaller, and I keep failing at this).
