But Mono doesn't have a usable Windows.Forms (yeah, the I wonder how useful the Wine based one will be for real users). But it does run Gtk# (which due to a strange twist also runs on Portable.net).

As long as it is written in C# and standards based , it'll run just fine on Portable.net .. so there goes the "add on library" theory.

But things like XSP (mono's ASP.NET) call a few private methods in the BCL , which will never run on Portable.net.

Also about a few comments about "no co-operation between projects" ... Visit this link http://www.go-mono.com/archive/beta1/beta1.html#contributors . Be sure to look for names like Rhys Weatherley or Thong Nyguen .
