I like to keep them, to avoid breaking third party build scripts.

The removal of frameworks requires that the upstream packages actually work
on Mono, and I do not know if this is the case.

That said:

I think this one can go, there is an active set of users using it on Unix
from NuGet.

I am actually not sure about this one, is that really the case?

> * Rx -> I'm not really familiar with this one, but I think it's also on
> NuGet+open source

This one I know contains patches that make it work on Mono.   Without
these, they wont work.  So this might have to wait.
