When a user runs any of:
Run Locally in Mono
Run Remotely in Mono
Debug Remotely in Mono

We should check if they have referenced assemblies that are not getting
deployed (because they are in the gac).  This should exclude a list of known
dependencies that we know we have in Mono.

We can show a dialog that says something along the lines of:
The project that you are analyzing has references to assemlies from the GAC
which are not set to "Copy Local", and will not be deployed with your
application when it is run on Mono.  This will likely prevent your application
from running if these references are not installed in Mono's GAC on the target

To ensure your application will execute, you should either set the assemblies
to "Copy Local" or install the assemblies to the GAC on the target machine. 
More details are available online at http://mono-project.com/[PAGE TO BE

We should include a checkbox to allow the user to not be warned again for this
