[mono-vb] Mono VB Compiler With SharpDevelop

Hi Scott,

MonoDevelop already uses mbas, but it's support for VB projects has
stalled some eons ago, so I'm not sure how much coding/testing is
needed to have it fully working.

Sharpdevelop, uses vbc by default, but I guess that it may be
configurable somewhere or some, hopefully small, recoding of the
language binding is in order.

As both projects are open-source it is at least feasible to make them
use any compiler. AFAIK, VS.NET VB support module has vbc hardcoded
in, and is unavailable to be changed.


Have Fun,

As I'm currently working a lot with Java and even fixing Java VMs
(JamVM/Kaffe) and GNU Classpath code, I think I may partly borrow the
title (Javaman) from my friend Bruno Souza and become the
MonoNJavaMan. Yeah, I may currently be crazier than usual...
