        I would just like to get a clarification of your last statement in the 
previous posting on this thread. Are you saying that you are not considering 
any System.Messaging implementation until Mono 2.0 or later (at which time 
Indigo would have been out as 1.0)?

I've got a set of apps that are relying on MSMQ to do async message passing. 
I'd like to have those apps run on Linux or at least under Mono even if it's on 
Windoze. One of the issues that prevents me from doing that is the fact that 
System.Messaging isn't implemented yet and that support for 
System.ServiceProcess & System.Configuration.Install isn't complete. 

I looked at MonoQLE by Rafael Teixeira, but it is in it's infancy, and no 
progress seems to be occuring on it for the last year or so.

Could you please share your vision (and timeline) on these pieces/classlibs?. 
While not crucial to Mono development in general, these could be pretty 
important decisive factors for many developers trying to get their business 
apps ported over.
