I was not suggesting you build Winforms from source, just pointing to simple 
examples that might help you get a feel for winforms apps and building them, 
and show you what is working already.

Actually, that's something that Microsoft came up with, that you're required 
to specify the assembly you want to link against. It's neither a mono 
specific thing, nor related to how SWF is implemented. And the /r: switch is 
also defined by Microsoft, on their csc.exe

Why, what have you tried that didn't work?
