All -target:winexe does, is that on win32, the application will start
w/o a console window. This also holds true for mcs compiled apps that
use -target:winexe.

We build our app at work w/ mcs and use it on the .net CLR all the time.
In fact, while 95% of our development is done on linux, 95% of our
testing takes place on win32 w/o mono. This is a complex application
that uses gtk#, webservices, glade#, async operations, threadpools, etc,

So mcs compiled apps absolutely work on the .net CLR.
