I understand that there is a problem of gcc distribution, but you should 
distribute only a small part of the
GCC toolchain just a few components, and also the integration of a front 
end in the GCC building process is

Also using the KSI for the AOT doesn't pay much, but could be more 
interesting an usage for the JIT, in this way you could reach
many platforms that are waiting a fast execution of the mono system.

Anyway, thanks!
