[Mono-dev] MDB file format

I am writing a remote debugger for a c# operating system.  I have 
assembly-level debugging working but am now trying to implement 
source-level debugging and for this I need some way to link source code 
lines with the appropriate offset in the CIL code.  I use csc to compile 
the source and then convert the generated pdb to an mdb file with 
pdb2mdb but now I am having difficulty reading the mdb file.  Is there 
anywhere I can find formal specifications of the mono debugging format 
(.mdb) file format, and if so, how stable is the specification?
