[Mono-dev] Support for Portable Class Libraries (PCL)

Microsoft has recently introduced support for Portable Class Libraries,
allowing the same DLL to be reused for both .Net 4 and Silverlight 4 without
recompiling the source.  There are restrictions on which APIs are available,
and some minor API changes from their non-portable equivalents to gain
consistency across the platforms.


additional development effort would be required for the Mono project to
deliver equivalent Portable Class Library system library implementations, to
be used as library references when compiling .Net 4 / Silverlight 4 portable
code with gmcs?

Kind Regards,
