 open one for "CommonApplicationData versus /usr/share".
 Please note that while the "machine store" concept is required for
 compatibility with MS framework, I strongly discourage it's use
 because 98% of the time it isn't used correctly - and this can affect
 *all* mono applications on a system.

+I disagree that the machine store is merely a compatibility topic.
+Specifically, throughout Mono.Security the Trusted CA Roots are used
+per default to validate foreign certificates. The trust store is
+actually the reason I care about the store's location.
+I believe that consistency would require the machine cert stores to be
+place in an analogous place to the HKLM registry entries -- and those
+use Environment.GetMachineConfigPath(). The current location seems
+simply wrong to me.
+Just a statement of how I see it. What you do with it is your call.
+Not reopening.
