+Summary: SqliteClient has dependency to Mono.Posix.dll
+SqliteClient has (quite annoying) dependency to Mono.Posix.dll.
+When there is a need to include Mono.Data.SqliteClient.dll with an
+application, one needs to include Mono.Posix.dll and also
+MonoPosixHelper.(so|dll). Those dependencies are about 8 times bigger than
+the SqliteClient .dll!
+At the moment only one function is used from Mono.Posix, which makes this
+dependency even more pointless.
+Miguel suggested copying that function to SqliteClient, but as I know
+nothing about Marshaling and why the dependency was created, I'll leave it
+to someone who knows what they are doing.
