 Or you could make the main thread be the finalizer thread ;-)
 The issue about Mono for embedded systems is something that we can
 revisit later, but right now it is more important that we focus on
 desktop/server applications.  There is no compeling reason to go on
 the embeded space right now.

+Just comparing pthread IDs wont help because you dont want to exit if
+the Main thread just falls off the end of Main(), but you do if it
+fails to catch an exception.
+However, the thread needn't be wasted - it can be doing all sorts of
+housekeeping: eg finalization, or threadpool management.  With those
+two integrated, the total thread count won't have increased.
+I'll knock up a proof of concept and send the patch to mono-hackers
+for comments.
