PIC files are only used when you embed Mono into a third party
application (when you use -lmono).   The static case is what Mono uses
if you invoke it as a runtime from the command line ("mono app.exe")

Hand written information can go into the data directory;   Source code
generated by a tool should be generated at compile time.
