[Mono-list] System.PlatformID Issues

That sounds like a good idea, and if I might suggest an addition:

Make sure that the mono.dll is strongly named.  That way, an installer
can add mono.dll to the GAC for all .net programs to use, rather than
maintaining a copy of mono.dll for each program.  Once such an assembly
is available, I'd be happy to use it for cross-platform development...
I could use Mono's PlatformID code instead of MS's one to be sure of
cross platform support.
