All those tools should work the same way on mono as they do with
MS.Net. This said, about half a year a go I tried out every open
source obfuscation tool I could find (wanted to check how much memory
could I free by reducing namespaces, method and class names to single
letters) and every one of them failed a very simple test: each one
failed to work once I used it to strip itself. So good luck with your
search ;-)
