[mono-vb] Question about VB Runtime in Mono 1.2

The runtime package is still 1.1.18 because there weren't really many  
changes between 1.1.18 and 1.2.

The VB runtime isn't actually affected by winforms, it's only required to  
run programs written in VB, and if it's a program using winforms, then the  
winforms improvements will show up as well (as all the other improvements  
in 1.2).

In general the VB runtime is just a seperate assembly required to run VB  
programs, and changes in other components will rarely affect it (just as  
changes in the VB runtime will rarely affect other components).

I hope this makes things clearer for you :)
