[Mono-list] JVM performance: JVM as a basis for CLR

AFAIK /unsafe doesn't do anything if you didn't write unsafe code (i.e., use
the "unsafe" keyword).  The idea being that, even though one of the methods
of one of the classes in your assembly is unsafe, the rest can still be
verifiable, safe code.  It shouldn't give any advantage or even change the
resulting binary at all.
