After about a year in the making for MimeKit and nearly 8 months for MailKit,
they've finally reached 1.0 status.
I started really working on MimeKit about a year ago wanting to give the .NET
community a top-notch MIME parser that could handle anything the real world could
throw at it. I wanted it to run on any platform that can run .NET (including mobile),
and do it with remarkable speed and grace. I wanted to make it such that re-serializing

Enable IL instrumentation in MonoTouch
View mtouch
#!/bin/bash -e
# This mtouch wrapper adds an argument for a "postcompile" command to be run
# after the managed code is compiled to IL but before it is compiled to native code.
# It may be passed as "Additional mtouch arguments" in MD like so:
# -postcompile "mono ${SolutionDir}/postcompiler.exe ${TargetPath}"
# To use, rename mtouch to mtouch_real and put this script in its place.
