Added a new reference that controls stdlib include/exclude. I've left 
the old one still in there, but am reasonably sure that we could cut the 
old behaviour out on default references and nothing would break (as 
excluding the stdlib is so drastic, I doubt anyone does it)

Does it work? No, not yet. And /home/slo becomes drive F:

       [csc] compiling 2 files
      [exec] fixme:win32:PE_CreateModule Unknown directory 14 ignored
      [exec] err:module:import_dll Module (file) mscoree.dll (which is 
needed by
xe) not found

Drive F. Hmmm. Maybe the CLR has assumptions about drive letters built 
in from the beginning -so its easier to flow with the design defect than 
it is is to correct it.
