Sorry for the confusion.  I don't think bootstraping from the ground up is
really a trust issue.  It's more of an understanding issue.  Most exploits
aren't done out of malace, but done out of error.

I'm not saying I don't trust things, I just want to understand the nuts and
bolts.  If I wanted to blindly trust Mono, I already do.
