+Summary: al: /template option does not support absolute path
+Mono's AssemblyLinker (al) uses Assembly.Load instead of 
+Assembly.LoadFrom (or Assembly.LoadFile) to load the specified template 
+AssemblyName myAssm = new AssemblyName();
+myAssm.Name = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension (templateFile);
+Assembly assembly = Assembly.Load(myAssm);
+As you can see, Mono's al treats the specify assembly filename as the 
+assembly name instead of using it as a filepath.
+As a result we do not support absolute or relative file names for 
+the /template option. This does not match the behaviour of the MS 
+Would a patch that fixes this issue be accepted ? I can hardly believe 
+anyone relies on this broken behaviour.
