Anti-Mono sentiment

Mono shouldn't be included by default. But the latest version should be available in the repository. Mono is at version 2.4 and the last version available from repository is 2.0.1-4. But! Packaging Mono seems horible. I've looked at the source it seem heavily RPM oriented :S

Heh: if you want the version in the repository to be less than six months behind the current release version, don't use Debian. I like Debian, I love Apt, but the big reason I stopped using it was because the versions of software in the repositories where ancient. (And Unstable is, well, unstable. And sometimes not really very up-to-date itself!)
