New assemblies must be developed on their own module and are not by  
default distributed by Mono.

As I explained in another email, new assemblies must go through a  
period of time where users find bugs, find design problems, try things  
out and so on before we can get those into the distribution.

We have a few exceptions for cases where this is not possible  
(Mono.Simd) and we explicitly label the assembly as having an unstable  
API until we have sorted out all the kinks.   But in general, we do  
not like to take over more responsibilities than we already have, so  
we tend to ask developers to mature their APIs first.
