No, it doesn't. The class libs do that, so you can call the method in
the class libs that do.

The mono runtime and libmono are the same thing.

There is no API to do that, you must use mono_jit_exec () or
mono_runtime_run_main (), the latter allows you to exec any suitable
method in your assembly (not necessarily the entry point).
