Screen shot of old MfA warnings.

Current Behavior: While building some applications there are compiler warnings are displayed that claim a certain member will be Removed in "Mono for Android 3.0".

Expected Behavior: Since the current version of Mono for Android is 4.0.1 these members should be removed or the message changed to reflect the actual version when they'll be removed.

To Reproduce: 
1) Open MonoDevelop
2) Open the ContactManager monodroid-samples application
3) Build the Application


MD: 2.8.5
MfA: 4.0.1
Mono: 2.10.8

The real problem is that 4.0 was going to be the 2.0 release; the version change came very late. The types are present to support developers coming from 1.2, so removing them would be premature.

I'm instead updating the message to state that they'll be removed in the 5.0 release.

Fixed in commit c1c00d90.
