Re-Introducing mdoc

Many moons ago, Jon Skeet announced Noda Time. In it he asked:

How should documentation be created and distributed?

Thus I pondered, "how well does mdoc support Windows users?"

The answer: not very well, particularly in an interop scenario.

So, lots of bugfixing and a false-start later, and I'd like to announce mdoc for .NET. All the power of mdoc, cross-platform.

Note that these changes did not make it into Mono 2.6, and won't be part of a formal Mono release until Mono 2.8. Consequently, if you want to run things under .NET, you should use the above ZIP archive. (You can, of course, install Mono on Windows and then use mdoc via Mono, you just won't be able to run mdoc under .NET.)

The changes made since Mono 2.6 include:

Next time, we'll cover what mdoc is, and why you'd want to use it.
