"sgen" has two different meanings:

1. SGen is Mono's Simple Generational GC, now the default in Mono 3.2. You can explicitly opt-in to using the SGen GC by using `mono-sgen` or `mono --gc=sgen`.

2. SGEN is .NET's XML Serialization Generator Tool. Mono also has an `sgen` tool to generate XML serialization assemblies.
