Mhm, this is indeed not good.  But here is a suggestion: since the
plugin will be conditionally compiled, I am assuming you will have
conditional compilation anyways.

If you have conditional compilation based on Mono, you might as well,
directly link the Mono runtime with the editor at startup. 

I know it is sub-optimal, but it would only be a conditional dependency.
