[Mono-dev] Mono.Security on Compat Framework

Hi Sebastien,

I think my changes consist of the following:

1. A "compatibility layer". This contains a rough copy of some namespaces from mono (S.IO, S.Security.Cryptography, S.ComponentModel, S.Diagnostics, S.Net, S.Runtime.ConstrainedExecution, S.Security, S.Threading)
2. The addition of a utility class which lets one launch a method asynchronously (ie, different thread), and the usage of this method wherever neccessary.

Let me know if you're interested...
