You can work in the class libraries in Visual Studio or in MonoDevelop,
WITHOUT Cygwin, unless you need to change things in the C (native) part of
Mono runtime. To test in Mono you can substitute most libraries (those that
don't call into native code either as P/Invoke or InternalCall) directly in
a binary install. Corlib and System libraries you need to be more careful
as they have lot of InternalCalls to the native part of the runtime and
mechanism that checks the versioning of both sides to avoid hard crashes on
changes, so you need an appropriate version of libmono to match
corlib/System sources from git trunk.
