As soon as FC changes one of the libraries which (say) gtk-sharp or
monodoc relies on, the rpms will break or you won't be able to do the
install. At least with the source version, you just do a quick recompile
and it's as if nothing happened.

Point is, if you have the -devel rpms installed and updated, you just
need to recompile and that's it. Jobs done.

Plus it does have the advantage of giving bug fixes not available in the
rpms ;-)
