[Mono-dev] correct tail call optimization in mono

I read some contradictory information about tail call optimization in 
mono. So I did this test in FSharp:

let test_1 fn n = if n < 0 then 1 else fn (n - 1)
let rec test_2 n = if n < 0 then 1 else test_1 test_2 (n - 1)
let main = test_1 test_2 10000000

It works on MS .Net but crashes on mono (linux).

Do you plan to support the correct tail call optimization?
If yes, when it should be supported correctly?
