[Mono-dev] Resx files in Mono

Thanks Robert that explains a bit.

My goal was to make a minimal amount of changes to the webstack so that it
could be kept upto date easily.  Looking at the way it's done currently by
creating a csproj file that references the files individually, I'm not sure
it's possible.

What I'm not thinking is that it may be better to simply make the
aspnetwebstack source be able to compile standalone on mono.

I'm open to suggestions, I'm not sure I'm the best man/woman/person for the
job, however I really want to give it a go.
