[Mono-list] Mono Packages split.

   We are having a debate about the current packaging strategy: so far
we have split everything into small chunks that have correct dependency

   Although this is useful for folks that want to get very granular
setups, the problem is that people have to download 20+ packages to get
a complete Mono install.

   An intermediary hack was to create a mono-all.zip file that contains
everything and have people download that.

   My feeling is that we should go back to the simpler two way split:
mono and mono-devel packages.

   What do people think?
