This isn't really an option. If you try to package mono 3 and you don't 
have a tarball of the 3.0 source code, this is really annoying.

Even on the download page mono 3.0 is stated as beta and MacOSX only 
release. There is no clear statement that mono 3.0 is the new stable 
release and should be used instead of mono 2.10.x!

Would be great if there is a clear statement of the mono developers if 
it's a stable release or not, as a packager (like me for Arch Linux, I'm 
the mono maintainer) it's really hard to follow the stable release 
series here. Since Xamarin took over the development, the webpage of the 
mono-project is rarely updated with the necessary information! Please 
change this! I want really support mono and I want really package it to 
deliver the latest mono release to our users.

My 2 cent to the release politics!
