[Mono-dev] ilasm as a library

I tried that in the past, to programatically call ilasm. The issue was that
the library has some static context
so it can't be called multiple times. I tried to hack around using
appdomains with no luck at all.

Changing it to work as a library should be easy (just peek at Driver::Main
for how to do it). The main core issue
is fixing the issue I mentioned. I have no idea how hard to fix it because I
didn't put much more than an hours
looking into it.
