Yepp, I strongly agree with Atsushi. Many apps are already written in MS.NET framework technology and they should be able to run without changes on Linux, Mono at Win, etc. 

One example: Renaming the executables might lead to dead file links when a main program tries to start the executable of a sub application called "sub.exe", because it wouldn't be there when you rename those files to ".exe.mono".

So, if you want to start your executable with Mono and a nice picture, better create file links with normal windows technology with nice icons and reference to the desired mono instance.

It could be possible (only) when it is under Windows, but your suggestion contradicts one of our purpose i.e. have managed code (.exe and
.dll) runnable under Linux *as is*.
