FYI the Mono.Debugger.Soft.dll binary is included in MD SVN so that it
can be built on .NET and Mono 2.4, while still being able to target
Mono 2.6. The library simply wraps a wire protocol to communicate with
the real debugger, which is inside the Mono 2,6+ runtime.

N.B. Debian's DSFG policy doesn't allow them to include binaries that
weren't built from source in the package tarball, so the Debian/Ubuntu
MD 2.2 binaries for Mono 2.4 do not include the soft debugger addin.
Hopefully someone will care enough o can patch MD to include a source
snapshot instead.
