To make it really clear, we should distinguish between the Mono
built-in copy (in /usr/lib/mono) and the one that MonoDevelop
installs into its Addins directory. The mono copy is release 2.2 
and one monodevelop installs is 2.2.9. Both are out of date as
far as NUnit is concerned.

I'm in favor of folks installoing the latest NUnit <g> but they
should understand that it won't give them monodevelop support.
They will have to use the nunit console or gui runner.

I'm wondering why the binary install for mono includes a private
copy of NUnit at all. I know you need it for building mono,
of course, but why put it in a binary download? In fact, some
distro packages exclude it, which leads to even more confusion.
