Right now I think the System.Drawing guys are just using a binary file
in CVS that we created with ilasm. Our ilasm is pretty stable now, so we
should be able to compile it in the build. We could try using monodis
and a script to create the il but monodis might not be up to the task
yet ;-)....I will get on this soon though.
