You can create a second copy of the MD source code and recompile this
second copy with the --enable-aspnet and --enable-aspnetedit options.
To avoid interfering with your stable copy of MD, you can either
a) not install the second copy, but use "make run" to run it from the
build directories
b) install it into a different prefix

You'll still need to "sudo make install" in the
Extras/AspNetEdit/chrome folder, but this will just install the XUL
addin to the install prefix and your Firefox/Mozilla default profile.
It's highly unlikely to break anything.

You can save the bother of duplicating the source, and just recompile
your main MD codebase. If you don't install it but use "make run",
then you won't damage your stable installation.

Either way you'll need to install JSCall#, and make sure that it
installs its native libraries into a path accessible by the dynamic
linker, and that its .pc file is able to be found by pkg-config.
