[Mono-list] I'm Confused... when is a class really 'Completed'?

First off, I appreciate the info, but that's not really a usable answer...

mono has enough 'stuff' that it's possible to write real-world, usable
programs.  As long as you stay inside the working stuff.  What isn't
real-world is telling me to research the source for every class I want to
use a priori (a huge task), which is only slightly worse than finding out
half way into coding that I can't do something the way I expected to be able

An important part of being able to use mono is the home page's "List of
not-implemented classes".

However that is generated, yeah, it's probably really, really important to
tag the broken / unimplemented code so the list is right...

Sorry. When some time ago I was trying the Thread class I found that
some of those methods (in particular Resume and Suspend) weren't
behaving as they should (I spent a lot of time debugging not buggy
threading code :-)). So I added those messages and exceptions but I did
anything else. Maybe I should have added a [MonoTODO] before the method
too :-(

The only answer I can give you is... look at the sources whenever you
think the class is not doing what it should.
