Can't we just say that if you pull in gtk-sharp.dll from the GAC, that
you automatically pull in gtk-sharp.dll.config from the GAC too? (And
can't we just store the .config file as a resource inside gtk-sharp.dll
rather than as a separate file? Or would that be at the wrong level of
abstraction for the vm to be able to find it?)
