NUnit migration was actually more painful than I have expected :( and
now I have to drop gnunit from mono-tools since it is based on existing
nunit20 and does not build with nunit24 anymore.

I have removed it from the build process of mono-tools, and possibly
it will be removed from mono-tools at some stage unless its build get

Winforms version of NUnit GUI should work if you build it or copy
