How about if, for a change, those projects were finally starting
to perceive mono as a platform with its own internals?

It's a no brainer to add a `if (Type.GetType("Mono.Runtime") != null)'
branch to the already existing hack.

There are chances that some projects are already using a platform
check what will fail after renaming the field. Some mono-only
projects might fail after renaming this field as well, making
a more elaborate patch necessary. Just because of the ignorance of
some library developers...
