Only required for applications that uses some windows native apis, for
example if somebody want to run Paint.net (windows version), because
monoPaint still very early stage.
I think can also help to reduce need for posting application mono from
MS.net.  So a lot of windows applications can run out of box without
any porting. And these apps can also be used on non x86 platform.
