Break the .NET compatibility and make mono a whole new language?

There is some added functionality in Mono (Gtk#, Mono assemblies, etc).

However, introducing big changes brings the problem of losing the compatibility between them, which is a very helpful thing for a lot of developers, and something that we would like to keep.
