To use our System.Windows.Forms with Mono, you must also use our 
System.Drawing, DotGNU.Images, System.Drawing.Xsharp, Xsharp, etc.  The only 
bits from Mono that you'll be able to reuse are their corlib.dll, System.dll, 
and System.Xml.dll libraries.

The reason for this is that we added some extensions to System.Drawing to 
support drawing toolkits (Win32, X/Windows, etc).  Mono uses a different 
approach, so their System.Drawing cannot be used.

We would welcome any patches that would make our SWF more reusable with Mono, 
or any other CLI implementation (it does work with MS if you hold your mouth 
in the right position :-) ).  Since we don't use Mono regularly ourselves, we 
would rely upon others to provide the patches, but I don't have any objection 
to including them.
