[Mono-dev] Mono gac vs Multi gac

Hello Andres,

This is indeed a challenging question.

When Microsoft runs the "gacutil" command, once per version and lists a
single assembly, it looks really like the equivalent of Mono being
installed in separate prefixes, it is almost as if none of the different
versions are aware of the other assembly versions installed in the system.

The first question is whether there is a workaround that will work for you,
or other developers in your situation, because that seems like an
unobtrusive way of solving this problem, without making changes that would
affect too many parts of the code base.

The second question is whether it would be enough to provide a policy file
that forwards 3.5 requests to 4.0 requests.  Like we did for Gtk#
