This might or might not be helpful, but we've found that compatibility between mono & .Net is poor with regard to ASP.Net.  If you simply create a project in XS, and try to open it in VS, or vice-versa, it doesn't work.  Missing assemblies, project won't open, runtime exceptions, etc.  The ASP.Net mod_mono etc, is broken in the most common binary distributions; colloquial wisdom is that you have to build mono from source (at least for now).  The XS/MonoDevelop templating and scaffolding is wildly less robust than in VS.  We are remaining optimistic that mono ASP.Net is going to mature quickly thanks to MS open sourcing .Net, but for the present, we opted to develop in VS, and publish to Azure Web Sites instead.  (The thing that's cool about Azure web sites, is that you just push code up, and let MS maintain all the server patches & security updates, etc)
