Currently the use of 2.0 features is not directly exposed in all the
embedding APIs.
Until we do, I suggest you call mono_jit_init() passing the filename of
an assembly compiled with gmcs (so a 2.0 assembly): this will cause the
runtime to initialize in 2.0 mode. The Main() of this assembly can just
be empty.
