Well, I think I hit the wrong 'scenario' (see scenario 3 below).

We have the following variables:

* compiler (used to build test) : mcs (mono), csc (microsoft)
* referenced assemblies         : mono, microsoft
* runtime (used to execute test): mono, microsoft .net
* etc

This leads to several scenarios (not all mentioned here):
1) compile test with mcs, referencing mono assemblies, running in mono
3) compile test with csc, referencing mono assemblies, running in 
microsoft .net
5) compile test with csc, referencing microsoft assemblies, running in 
microsoft .net

Now the NUnitGuidelines document states : "Test your test with the 
microsoft runtime". What does this mean?

I think this means scenario 5 should be possible (and should be easy 
doable using the existing makefiles/.build files).

If it's 'difficult' to fullfill this, people probably won't do it.

If you're running linux, scenario 1 is probably the most used one (and 
thus most tested).

Ok, I think I will start with test for the existing items first.
Is there a Test guideline on how to deal with input/output files?
