Never used this one :)

Hmmm, the only problem I see is that there is no easy known way to use
prj2make from command-line only through MonoDevelop. I know that some
non-C# developers use prj2make in debian to get some software compiled
on their system that only ships visual studio project files.

Does cecil provide some application to get those API info dumped (if so
is that compatible with mono-api-diff)? As I wrote a shell script called
mono-api-check for debian that checks if 2 library versions are API
compatible (which is handy for packaging).
