Hi Kornél,

Thanks for the reply.

I have six servers to manage.  We sometimes release ten version of code 
a day, which over-write the Web.config.  Editing this file is 
potentially dangerous.  After an edit, I have to re-start the mono.

My feeling is that this file must be interoperated by some part of the 
Mono suit (stop me if this is wrong.)  It would be much better for me if 
control could be administered by some simple flag.  Or even a static 
public variable in mono.

If this is not possible, it's not so important.  I am just interested to 
know if there is an alternate method.

I can't be the only member who would like better control of this. 
Alternatively, do any members have scripts to toggle the Webservice 
Discovery which are safe and fast?

Thanks again,
