Good question.  The answer is that the Mono.Options currently in svn is
~identical to NDesk.Options 0.2.1 (which I'll be announcing soon, it's
only been sitting around for the last few months with ~no changes...).
The only major difference is the namespace.

Which of course means they're not source compatible -- you'll need to
change a `using` declaration...

That said, for the time being I plan on keeping NDesk.Options &
Mono.Options in sync with each other (and will likely use a #if block in
the future to control the namespace so that they'll be identical files),
but I don't know for how long I'd want to do this...
