Default many broken mono packages because of gnome-sharp update (was rawhide report: 20080704 changes)

This update to gnome-sharp:

> gnome-sharp-2.20.0-1.fc10
> * Thu Jul 3 18:00:00 2008 Xavier Lamien <lxtnow[at]gmail.com>
> - 2.20.0 - Update release.

which should have been pre-announced to give time for other
maintainers to rebuild their packages has caused the breakage of a
large number of mono apps, including major apps like f-spot, beagle
and tomboy:

Could maintainers please be more aware of the number of packages that
their package can affect; co-ordinate with other maintainers so they
can rebuild immediately the new package is available (or at least very
soon after); and give a fair warning on fedora-devel-list (as was done
with the gnutls update) before going ahead with such a major soname

I know this is rawhide, but it could be made a tad bit smoother for
testers if there was a bit more co-ordination between maintainers.
