[Mono-dev] NUnit versions that come with mono

Ideally, install the runner components of NUnit once, in a convenient
location, by downloading the binaries from NUnit.org. That's how we
designed the runners to be used. Each runner version rv can handle
tests for any framework version fv, such that 2.0 <= fv <= rv.

NuGet works really well for components that need to be referenced by
the tests, like nunit.framework. It's less useful for tools like the
console runner. I bent to pressure from a vocal minority of users when
I created the NUnit.Runners package. These folks like it for build
machines that don't have nunit installed, although the binary zip file
would work equally well in such a situation, IMO. I definitely
wouldn't use if for a developer desktop.
