Qyoto packages are available in Kubuntu 7.10 and I've done some
updates in our development version (hardy).  Things are working
nicely.  Some comments:

Why do the examples compile to files with an extension of .monoexe?
Surely these are just .exe files?  I confuses the debhelper packaging
tools somewhat.

Why is the library qt-dotnet.dll?  Since the package name is Qyoto it
would make sense to use that name consistently.

libqyoto.so shouldn't be in /usr/lib since it is only used internally
by qt-dotnet.dll and is not a public API.  It can be installed to the
same directory as qt-dotnet.dll and a qt-dotnet.dll.config file used
to find it.

>cat qt-dotnet.dll.config
        <dllmap dll="libqyoto" target="/usr/lib/cli/qyoto-4.3/libqyoto.so"/>

Finally it's nice to have a pkg-config file, these can be used by the
mono compiler to find dependencies easily.
