[Mono-list] CultureInfo to it-IT

As long as it new CultureInfo ("it-IT") does not raise an exception,
the culture is supported in Mono. It just sounds like that we don't
have the date format (of what?) as dd/mm/yyyy. Since our culture info
data for all cultures are based on IBM ICU and thus the Unicode
standard CLDR, they are often likely to be incompatible with going-
own-way Microsoft.NET.
We would fix those format data differences when they are submitted
as bugs to bugzilla.ximian.com with the actual reproducible code.

BTW do we say CultureInfo is not yet implemented? I don't think
Mono manual reports anything about it.
