+Summary: Avoid spawning an mcs process when compilng an ASPX page
+BugsThisDependsOn: 52760
+Based on a discussion in the mailing list.
+It would be nice if the ASPX compiler doesn't actually spawn the mcs as an
+OS process, but instead calls it directly. This way the problem on Win32
+where it requires the MS.NET framework to be installed in order to run ASPX
+pages will be cleverly avoided.
+------- Additional Comments From liyul@hotmail.com  2003-12-23 19:24 -------
+We had a temporary work around, moving assemblies like "mcs.exe" to
+the library directory and putting a pseudo mcs.exe under bin. The
+pseudo runs the real mcs using mono.exe. If mono guys want to see it,
+we can submit that.
+The reason we did that was due to the way in spawning processes by
+nmake or mingw make, both making current batch files setup unusable
+for compiling C# projects.
+I submitted bug 51370 requesting putting jit in dll in official win32
+release for easier embedding as well as performance improvement so
+that we don't have to keep on spawning processes.
