From email:

I've got a minor problem using the editor on my mvvm bindings.

The VS XML editor shows:


But the new MonoDroid one encodes it:

        local:MvxBind="{'Text':{'Path':'Session.Session.Title'}}" />

Can I turn this encoding off?

I agree, it is a tad annoying.   It does look like it is only a display issue, as editing the file directly with an xml editor reveals the 's again.
