           Summary: Full-AOT needs to be supported in the Simulator
    Classification: Mono
           Product: MonoTouch

When building and running in the Simulator, it still enables the JIT, which
prevents early detection of JIT bugs (i.e. causing a JIT on the device). This
means that the slow build/AOT/install/click to debug/attach/exception cycle
takes a long time to track down and fix those errors. 
If it is not possible to disable the JIT within the simulator, then an option
to perform AOT, and instrument when JITs are performed would be a great help.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write some code that causes a JIT
2. Run in Simulator, no error
3. Run on device, app crashes.

Expected Results:  
When run in the Simulator, the app crashes (or prints out a message stating
that a JIT has occured to the console).
