I was under the impression that this is exactly what the MonoMac
linker/bundler did. In fact, I thought it went further and only included the
specific classes and methods that you actually use within each assembly. My
understanding is that this would result in needed to distribute even less of
Mono than if you were to successfully pair things down to just including the
minimal number of complete assemblies.


Do I have that wrong?
