This is, of course, very similar to what ngen does on windows.  It
pre-jits the file and places the "compiled" executable in the global
assembly cache.  At runtime can choose to ignore the pre-jitted file,
but will generally use it.

The execution of pre-jitted and run-time jitted code is seemless.  On
installation, the .net framework pre-jits all of the System dll's.
