not necessarily, and that was my point.  We have in the past tried to
keep this sane, and we have succeeded (if only, to avoid having to
compile the assemblies on each architecture), but it would be a bad
assumption to make in general.

For instance, we have been talking about a `Posix.dll', the dllimport
magic for this will likely vary greatly depending on the target system.
