Yes, but I was turned off the SVN because it currently doesn't build on my 
system (I haven't figured out why)

All I was actually after is "what does mono use for where dotGnu  uses -l, and 
the answer is /r, as for windows.

(I, of course, regard it is a problem that I have to specify the 
/r:System.Drawing since I shouldn't have to worry about how 
System.Windows.Forms is implemented)

I have plenty of examples to work with ; Bradley L Jones' "Teach yourself the 
C# Language in 21 days".  I guess it's going to take a few months yet until 
the Winforms stuff really stabilises and becomes usable.

Anyway, thanks for the answer.
