[Mono-dev] Idea: UAC

Had this idea on the toilet just now: Universal Assembly Cache. When
an assembly references a strongly-named assembly which is not in the
GAC, Mono looks to the UAC: an online repo of strongly-named (and
FLOSS) assemblies. Several repos could be queried: distro-specific deb
or yum servers, Mono-provided servers, vendor-provided servers with
proprietary assemblies. The user is prompted to download the required
assemblies and once they've been installed in the local GAC, the
dependant application proceeds to launch. Just an idea. Thoughts?
