It's *possible* using the Moonlight SDK, but awkward:
* Your target runtime would need to be Mono
* You'd either have to install the moonlight SDK binaries into your
Mono installation, or set MOONLIGHT_SDK_PATH env var to point to them.
* You would need the "zip" utility in your path or in the moonlight
SDK directory.

Ideally someone would implement a SilverlightFrameworkBackend for the
DotNetTargetRuntime, so that MD could find the Silverlight SDK
assemblies. This would be very easy, but I don't have time to do it
myself right now.
