[Mono-dev] Mono C# compiler switch

Mono master has switched to Roslyn compiler as the default C# compiler.
We'll keep both compilers (mcs and csc) available for some time but csc
will be our preferred compiler from now on.

Our compiler always tracked Microsoft C# implementation very closely so I
don't expect any upgrade issues, especially when both mcs and csc will
co-exist because they have different set of supported command line
arguments. For those using xbuild (or CodeDOM driven APIs) the upgrade
should be automatic and only noticeable change will be different debug
symbols format.
