[Monodevelop-devel] the future of Prebuild and xbuild

Hey folks,

When I was in MA in January, mhutch and I talked about converging the
codebases of prebuild and monodevelop.  It seems that monodevelop will
be using 'xbuild,' which is the Mono version of msbuild.  On IRC
today, mhutch, sontek an I talked about making things a bit more

It seems a wise move to me to alter prebuild to depend on xbuild and
hand all of the heavy lifting off to it, providing only the same
command line interface.

Perhaps during a deprecation phase, a warning could be printed and the
old back-end could be used.  This will allow folks to alter their code
while still picking up the latest version of ours.

Thoughts?  ankit, lluis, I hear you're a couple of folks we should get
feedback from.
