See http://www.debian.org/social_contract When a package version includes "dfsg" in the name, it generally means that the source tarball provided by upstream was modified in order to meet the DFSG - for example, deleting binary-only bundles, or non-Free source code. Mono releases have been hit & miss on this front - some releases require +dfsg modifications, others don't. 2.0.1 did not need changing, 2.4 required HEAVY hacking - apparently 2.4.2 will be largely fixed.
