Something I've certainly done in the past to debug mono sources, was to create a MD/XS solution in the mono source dir locally on my system, with a really basic console application that referenced some mono classes, so I could then debug my console app & step through mono source in the IDE.  After doing stuff, I chose to commit mono source changes and discard the IDE scaffolding because it was trivial.

In the case of certmgr, was there any complexity in creating the solution in MD?  If it's trivial, it might be reasonable for people to just generate them when they need them.  If it's non-trivial, it might not be unreasonable to include those in the mono sources.
