I once read there was some hacky way to compile for the .NET CF using
the standard .NET Framework SDK's csc plus the .NET CF class library
assemblies. Will there be any chance some workaround might make it into
mcs? This could be done with a switch like in javac naming the target
runtime - such a feature might also avoid the separate gmcs compiler for
.NET 2.0.
