Thanks, Andreas, for pointing this out.  Apologies, Andrew, for not
noticing this earlier.

And unfortunately, there seems to be no good way to split up the
mono-web (ASP.NET) package, as the System.Web assembly seems to have
quite a few responsibilities.

As Michael Hutchinson pointed out, many apps rely on System.Web only
for the HttpUtility class.  For apps that need to keep their
dependency size sane, it seems the only choice is to bundle that class
directly in your app.

Thanks for all the input,
