[mono-vb] VN.net on unix/linux

Depending on the version of VB.NET (8), you can simply run the binaries
with Mono, no need to even recompile, but some helper classes (for My) may
be missing.

Try to run MoMA (http://www.mono-project.com/MoMA ) to gauge if other
dependencies/pitfalls may complicate things.

Hope it helps,
