Well, it will happen in stages;  Disabling the net_1_1 build will be the
first step, the second step will be the incremental removal of the
NET_1_1 removals and NET_2_0 as we transition into a world where 2.0 is
always enabled. 

Spiritually, NET_4_0 will take the place that NET_2_0 has today.

That branch will be called mono-2-6

We still have to maintain it long-term as part of our Mono 2.4 long-term
maintenance product, so 1.0 continues to be supported, but only on an
old version, we are not going to be dragging it into the future.
