Sorry, I wrote this email last night when I was rather tired. I meant to
say what work still needs to be done on the patch before we commit it. I
think the work on msbuild will prove to be slightly tricky, as that is
now the default build tool for .NET Core as well, and if I recall
correctly .NET Core and Mono use two different instances and
configurations of msbuild.

If our ultimate goal is to get .NET Core (with .NET 5 approaching to
replace .NET Core and .NET Framework, and eventually Mono as well) we
should maybe invest time into a general .NET build system. I'm not sure.
