[Mono-dev] State of aspnetwebstack on mono

Hi Daniel,

I'm referring to all the work coming out of the aspnetwebstack repository
on codeplex.  I don't think MVC 6 is being developed there yet.

Currently that cover MVC and Webapi that I know of, but there could be
others.  It essentially the codebase used to create the nuget packages.

I actually hit a little snag last night in that after stubbing
everythingthat shouldn't be relevant, I've got to a point where all
typeload exceptions are gone in WebAPI.  However, all Webapi requests just
result in an endless request to the server.  So this may be a fruitless
journey.  On the plus side, MVC 5.2.2 works out of the box it seems.
