I didn't add these hacks to a program.

Consider a new user trying out mono. 
He tries mono with some useful tool that he uses in .NET
Turns out it doesn't work.

Yes, maybe it's the tools fault.  But the end result is that it doesn't 
work, and the user thinks
"arg, apparenlty mono doesn't run my .net stuff, I'm sticking to clr 
thank you very much".

Bye, Lucas

PS Please note that there is no "official" way to do what these programs 
are doing trough their "hack".
