[Mono-dev] Running under the Mono 2.0 Profile

Sure, this is what we use for the normal static situation where you always
a particular program to run under a given profile. But it doesn't work for a
more dynamic situation, such as a developer needing to test different
under NUnit using different profiles.
For that purpose, we have menu items that say "Run under .Net 1.1, etc."
is implemented by using the COMPLUS_VERSION environment variable. For Mono,
we currently only say "Run under Mono" It would be nice if we could have
"Run under Mono 1.0 Profile" and "Run under Mono 2.0 Profile"
I probably should have explained all this in my note in the first place. :-(
