Hi Jon

Thanks for the info, as I'm so new to mono, I'm a bit wary of diving in 
and adding this stuff just right now (crikey I'm struggling to get Tao 
to work in monodevelop at the moment!).

Is there a timeline for this stuff getting added or is it up to people 
like me to jump in and implement things that are missing?
