[Mono-osx] Downloadable Documentation?

This may be a stupid question. I've recently come across the
'boo' language. It looks interesting and it has dragged me into
using mono. I know the language well enough (it is pretty similar to
python). However, I don't know the standard libraries very well at all.
Where can I get a library reference that I can download?
http://www.go-mono.com/docs/ has online documentation for most of
the libraries. I guess I could crawl it, but that doesn't seem like
a nice solution. (I want an offline copy.)
Microsoft has an online class library reference, and they have a
downloadable .NET SDK which I assume includes docs. But I don't have
access to a Windows box, and the SDK is only available as a windows
I posted on the mono-docs mailing list and was told:
> If you have Mono installed, you should already have the library

But it seems the Mac Mono installer doesn't install a 'monodoc'
binary. As was noted earlier this month in a thread entitled
"Getting online Help to work", there is a monodoc dir consisting of
zip files and indexes.
Can I use monodocs2html to get useful docs? If I try something
monodocs2html --source /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/
1.1.15/lib/monodoc/sources/ --dest monodocs
I get an error that there is no index.xml, which is right. There is
no index.xml in the "Mono.zip" file in the sources dir either. What
should I be doing?
