[Mono-dev] Moving *.Design to package "mono-design"

We have a proposal to move System.Design.dll, System.Drawing.Design.dll, and System.Web.Extensions.Design.dll to a separate package to break the dependency between mono-web and mono-winforms.

Tomboy has started to use System.Web so if we leave the packages as is it will suddenly depend on mono-winforms (where System.Design currently lives, which is needed by System.Web.Extensions.Design, currently in mono-web, which Tomboy doesn't need).

ivanz suggests the new package be called mono-designtime.

Please chime in if you have relevant information or a good reason to object.
