[mono-vb] Progress of vb.net for Mono

We are working on it but surely we are not done yet.

The less mature part is supportting option explicit off and option
strict off (latebinding),
as we didn't write all the pessimization  (oops flexibilization) code yet.

Progress was made recently to support on error goto/resume, but we
stronlgy recommend to use try catch for performance/easier-debugging

We think that for WinForms apps, our compiler is already able to
compile useable assemblies, for ASP.NET we are still experiencing some
trouble with generated code for some constructs like calling
parameterless subs without the empty parenthesis.

Bug reports are welcome to better guide our efforts.

I'm trying to become a "Rosh Gadol" before my own eyes.

It hurts!
