No, we should patch the broken packages to work with the current Mono.Cecil. 
And upstream deserves a beating for this attitude. :-/ Why am I not 
surprised this is coming from the M$-loving Mono community?

In any case, if you do think an exception should be granted, this will have 
to go through FESCo. But I doubt we will approve it, at least not if you 
don't provide evidence that somebody competent in C# tried to patch 
MonoDebugger to work with the new Mono.Cecil and failed due to some 
unsurmountable obstacle. If none of you Mono SIG folks is fluent in C#, then 
that's a problem that needs solving first of all.
