While I agree this would be nice, I think what kevin is recommending is
more reasonable.

You also must keep in mind that the gnome software map covers all sorts
of gnome apps, regardless of their official 'gnome' status. However, I
consider things like gtk-sharp, monodoc, gecko-sharp, monodevelop, etc
to be more tied into the mono project than just 'this application uses
mono'. All of them are done by mono developers, and cluttering the
"mono" download page with applications and libraries seems like the
wrong thing to do in the endrun.

Personally, I see a need for both solutions, however one should happen
relatively soon, where as the other would be nice in the long term.
