As you've probably noticed, the build process is less than ideal,
especially for releases. It's on my TODO list to overhaul it,someday
(every time I do a release, it moves further up the list...). That
would also allow the TC server to spit out build artifacts.

 I can see about building a .zip for .NET 2, though. Might not be too hard.

What are the issues with building the .NET 2 version with Ubuntu's
built-in Mono? If they're small it might be easier to just patch
those, #ifdef'd if necessary.
