The Linux kernel has the BINFMT_MISC mechanism for handling this.
http://www.atoker.com/mono/binfmt_misc.txt has generic instructions for
getting it working, while http://www.atoker.com/mono/mono.init is an
init script that'll set it up for you automagically.

Remember to make sure your CLI .exes have the executable bit set.
