You might not be aware of it, but you're suffering from a declining 
not-invented-here syndrome ;-)

Both GC and JIT are replaceable in mono. The first is sanely
replaceable while the latter is replaceable in theory, as
nobody has done it publicly besides the now obsolete interpreter.

Mono's BCL does depend on the underlying runtime. If you want
to replace the *whole* runtime, a lot of internal calls would have
to be provided by the new runtime. This can be avoided by
implementing a new JIT as mentioned above.

Al this stuff can be easily discovered by reading the source and
the docs.
