[Mono-devel-list] Potential GAC implementation ideas.

This is actually possible, if the GAC on win32 is set to
$WINDIR\Assembly\mono_gac or something...

You would operate out of the same gac, but you would still have to have the
mono libraries.

Getting the mono runtime somehow to use the .net gac'd libraries is a
totally different matter I cant and wont comment on.
