Most of the concerns were about Mono, not MD. The *main* problem was
that despite googling and RingTFM I wasn't even aware of the prebuild
Mono packages' existance - that's because of the total mess on *your* site.

And let's not be nitpicky - I don't complain that Mono readme says you
need to use svn+ssh scheme to access the repository, where in fact it
doesn't allow anonymous access, do I?
