[Mono-list] Support for Microsoft.WebApplication.targets

I created a web application using Visual Studio 2005 and the Web  
Application Project Add-in (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/asp.net/ 
Aa336618.aspx). Essentially it just uses a .csproj (MSBuild) file for  
compiling and publishing a website.

Unfortuantly, I can't get it to build with Mono's xbuild. When trying  
to build, I get the error:
MSBUILD: error MSBUILD0000: Imported project: "/Microsoft/ 
does not exist.

Now, xbuild includes the .targets file for standard class libraries  
and console applications, however it doesn't appear to include the  
msbuild include file for web applications. Is this a known  
limitation? Google didn't bring up anything. I would have posted this  
on the devel list, but I wanted to make sure there wasn't an easy  

The only real workaround I can see is using the one Microsoft  
includes, but I doubt they would allow that.

Any ideas? Thanks.
