Building Mono 2.9 from git master, we're encountering an issue where an

> throwing "Too many open files exception".
> The culprit seems to be that a new file handle is opened for every embedded
> resource when it's added. Mono 2.6 doesn't have this problem, so it appears

The comment on the Save method says:

// According to MSDN docs, the stream is read during assembly save, not

So perhaps we need to change the compiler to load the assemblies in memory
after a certain number of resources have been loaded.
