[Mono-dev] Removing obsolete Npgsql

Npgsql in mono seems to be long dead. Judging from the contained
RELEASENOTES.txt, this version is from 2004.
this claims that applications should bring their own anyways.
Since Npgsql is even added as system assembly in
mono/metadata/assembly.c, replacing it is not as straight-forward as
with other libraries.
Also, this leads to things like
where people blindly package up what upstream brings along, crippling
the mono platform along the way.
All in all, I'd say that the upcoming 2.11/3.0 release would be a good
time to get rid of this.
If there's a chance of getting this merged I'd be willing to create a
patch removing mcs/class/Npgsql and all references to it.
Best Regards, David
