[Mono-dev] mgnat.dll saga

Robert, thanks again for your help.

In the .il file that are used to build mgnat.dll I have plenty of
references like:

.assembly extern mgnatcs {

And in the .cs file that are used to build mgnatcs.dll there are things

using system.task_primitives;
namespace mgnat.adalib {

where system.task_primitives is in mgnat.dll
.namespace system.task_primitives {

My understanding of the mgnat setup is that we want to have a "library"
in the namespace "mgnat" built from *.il files (generated by the A#
compiler from Ada library code) together with code from a small set of
*.cs files (in C# to complete the library interface using C# library). 

It looks like on MS Windows/C# the setup is using two mutually
dependant dlls and this works, but since this causes problem on mono,
from my reading of the A# compiler code, it should be doable to make
this only one dll instead of two if this helps.

Is there a way say x.il and y.cs can be combined in one dll using mono

Thanks in advance,
