All assemblies are installed into the GAC for use.

Now, since developers need the assemblies to be exposed to be able to
"reference" them, we have also made the /usr/lib/mono a place where
different packages can install their software.

1.0 contains assemblies that are part of the 1.0 API;  2.0 the 2.0 API,
and third parties can deploy their assemblies in other places.  One of
those is gtk# and monodoc which use the gtk-sharp directory there.
