We definitely should try to merge it in somehow; there's some excellent
work there, it would be a shame to abandon it.

At a high level, we should be covering
- What is Mono?  (.Net framework, toolchain description)
- Installing Mono
- Developing on Win32
- Developing on Linux/Unix  (Gnome.net tutorial would go here)

I like the Java tutorials.  Many developers would be coming from Java; I
think it would be good to follow some of the examples set by Java
