[Mono-list] Diffing library, XML website pipeline, XML.com

Before I get to what I wanted to actually write about, I just wanted to
mention that all three new articles on www.xml.com with the big icons
are all Mono-related. The first article creates some Mono apps for
hacking around with iTunes and Google searches. The second article
(finally) mentions www.GovTrack.us, which is Mono-powered. And the
third is written by Mono: A Developer's Notebook author Edd Dumbill.
Now the meat and potatoes of the email.
I "ported" the Perl module Algorithm::Diff into C#. It computes the
differences between lists of any type of comparable object, of course
and especially including strings. I thought people might find it useful.
I also posted the source of my XML document pipline system (called XPD)
that powers GovTrack.us, with instructions on how to set it up. For
background, see the article I wrote about it that Miguel linked from his
blog a few weeks ago.
If anyone's looking for a C# programming project, putting these two
libraries together as a Mono-powered Wiki would be a good one. :)
