wants the child process to be executed with a different runtime. One
possibility is a program such as the START.EXE which Win9x is bundled
with; invoking "start WindowTest.exe" is effectively identical to
invoking "WindowTest.exe" directly, and would provide an "escape hatch"
for user code that wanted to bypass common sense. ("START.EXE", which the
FileName property would point at, would not be detected as a .NET binary.)

+I don't think user applications ALWAYS expect to run ANY managed code
+application with Mono, especially when we use mono on Windows.
+On Linux, you can use binfmt configuration on your machine and then
+"mono blahblah.exe" will not be required.
+"Question: Can I run Mono applications without using 'mono program.exe'?"
+"Binary compatibility" depends on users code. For example, ".NET on
+windows" developers often specify case-insensitive filenames. It's not
+our blame, but those developers. Our managed code runs programs as
+users wrote to do so. It is the "binary compatibility".
