Wow, I didn't actually believe you would just put 10.3 back in there, but
thats excellent news, it's very much appreciated, and I'm sure others will
feel so too.  Sorry about the abruptness, it had been a very long day, and
its easy to just bash out what you're thinking.

I would upgrade to 11.0, but I generally wait for the ##.1 releases after
the whole problems that where experienced with the 10.0 release; and also I
have to make sure all apps still work the same way in the new OS release,
otherwise I alienate the wife from Linux adoption.

I take your point with the lack of testing for 10.3, and I will test with
mono 2.0 on that basis.

But thanks again for enabling this!
