Despite knowing get-monolite-latest is not recommended, I have found  
it helpful for porting Mono: On platforms that were not supported yet  
this allowed me to bootstrap from the SVN code I'm working on rather  
than having to synchronize changes between my working copy and a  
released tarball.

If we do such fixes and provide patches ourselves, directly without  
complaining, it does save some time. :)
