[Mono-dev] Standard name for mcs

The problem is that not all version of C# are completely backwards
compatible themselves. And for some reason I am still missing the point.
Mono going to 4.0 just means dmcs is available. Then when you move your
project to 4.0, you set the makefile to target dmcs. Where is the friction
going on? When you project is version X, it won't work with a previous
compiler anyway, and using a newer compiler isn't needed.
