Using a private copy of NUnit isn't a solution either. A public release
of NUnit will still be needed to compile the nunit projects. So you'll
end up compiling your projects with the installed NUnit, and running
them with the private copy of the add-in.

I think the best we can do right now is to fix the compilation issue,
and add a dependency in the NUnit add-in to make sure it is not loaded
if nunit is not installed.

So, how should the compilation be fixed? there is a patch in
http://bugzilla.ximian.com/show_bug.cgi?id=76814. Is this good? I
already applied the patch that removes unneeded nunit references.
