According to the webpage it's quite incomplete, so I'd include it only
on a list of toy compilers.

Note that the compiler (mcs) is released under the GPL license. The
runtime and assemblies are released under the LPGL and MIT/X11 license
respectively. This is the only compiler and runtime that supports
the latest C# standard on multiple platforms.

The compiler is quite limited, no 2.0 support and a few things missings
from 1.x support, too.
