It would seem good to to give the app more control over how assemblies
can mess with it. Maybe reverse the direction of the map, so in
app.exe.config we have

<import-dllmap dll="libglib-2.0-0.dll" assembly="gtk-sharp.dll" />

which would import whatever mapping gtk-sharp.dll.config specifies for
libglib-2.0-0.dll. This way you can specify exactly which DLL maps your
app 'trusts'. (Eg, what if two referenced assemblies have conflicting
global-dllmap entries for the same DLL name?)
