[Mono-list] TODO lists, missing types, et cetera.

Pardon any possible incoherency; I'm on my way to bed. ;-)
I've written a utility that generates XML todo lists for an assembly (to be
munged into HTML for the class status pages), and it optionally generates a
list of missing types by comparing with another assembly.
I'm getting a very odd result when I try and run it on corlib_cmp.dll,
though. I get a really useless dialog box that complains about a
"Breakpoint exception". The odd thing is, it works on any of our other
If you have a moment, will you update mcs/tools and try it out? The code is
in mcs/tools/todo.cs. Try running it something like this:
todo --diff int:mscorlib --maint ../../mono/status/type-maintainers.xml
--out corlib.xml corlib_cmp.dll
This will create corlib.xml, add maintainer information from the new-style
maintainers XML file I added recently, and compare with the in-memory
version of mscorlib to generate a list of missing types.
Try it on another assembly if you get a chance; it works, for example, just
fine on System.dll.
Off to sleep,
