Just a small update:

If you do not mind just having access to the C# 1.0 compiler as opposed
to the 2.0 one, the library will work, you still need to build it
yourself and use MS_COMPATIBLE, but I believe most things would work.

But like Jonathan said, we are making progress to drop the SRE
dependency that keeps us Mono-only for now.
