I think that would be usuful to know to all of you that for using Mono classes instead of MS's, e.g. System.Xml package, you just have to add the project contained in the directory e.g. System.Xml and then, in the AssemblyInfo.cs file generated by VS.NET for your project:
- Change the statement [assembly: System.CLSCompliant(true)] with [assembly: System.CLSCompliant(false)] (if present)
- Just comment the lines:
[assembly: AssemblyDelaySign(false)]
[assembly: AssemblyKeyFile(@"..\..\..\jabbernet.key")]
[assembly: AssemblyKeyName("")]
I suggest to write a note about this in the "contributing" page, so that who is not familiar with the C# signing procedure can contribute and debug mono classes from the VS.NET development environment (which is very nice!)

	I believe Jason and Krall did check in VS.NET files that you can use to
	compile our System.XML and even to run the System.XML tests (which is
	way cool, and way simple)
