[Mono-list] WCF

There are some points to note for answer to your question:

- There is "Add Service Reference" command implemented in MonoDevelop 2.4.
- svcutil tool is also implemented. The ASR command above is just an 
   way to this tool.
- Our cilent proxy generator has limited functionality and not rock 
solid yet.
- The generated proxy might not communicate fine with .NET services. I 
   test WCF fixes in complicated way, mono client to .NET service, .NET 
client to
   mono service, and mono on both sides, but there's always failing cases.
- Our proxy generator either doesn't support whatever we don't support 
in our
   WCF engine itself, or it may generate code that are not supported in 
WCF engine.
- MD's proxy generator code is somewhat old. It was copied from our svcutil
   implementation in mcs/tools/svcutil. We have newer code that works better
   with the latest WCF assemblies (i.e. git master), but I'm not sure if 
the newer
   svcutil code works fine with 2.8 WCF assemblies. I'm thinking to 
replace the
   old code in MD when Mono 2.10 is getting out.

Anyways, give it a try! (it is possible at least ;-)
