I don't know of documentation for this, but Mono 2.4 is old, and I wouldn't
bother trying to support anything older. Besides, it'd be a pain to test
compatibility with so many frameworks, many bugs got fixed since then, etc.
Mono developers and users tend to use recent versions of the framework. Just
ask your users to upgrade if necessary. Otherwise, your development costs
will skyrocket, and your development team will be frustrated. :)

Anyway, from what you're saying, it sounds like you'd like to go for either
the 2.0 or 3.5 profile.
