I didn't realize that once vbnc bootstraps on mono this won't be a problem  
anymore, so I agree with you here, I think the best would be to patch vbnc  
until it can bootstrap on mono.

This would be a nice-to-have feature, but I don't think I'll spend time on  
it, there are plenty of other areas that can be improved upon first.

I didn't have time to look at it yet, I'll tell you later!
