How would this affect source distribution of Mono? Would the entire
source code for the compiler, runtime, class library, XSP, mod_mono,
GTK#, MonoDevelop, etc, be lumped into a single tar.gz? Would it affect
the CVS structure? Or does this only concern binary distribution in the
formats provided by Novell? (The RPMs listed on the mono download page.)
