[Mono-list] [Mono-dev] Same way for linux library as windows library

I sent an email on the very same topic a few days ago, but it seems it never
arrived :/

What if the project is a class library? There's no startup script in that
case, unless you move that burden to the consumers of your library (which is
not really nice or developer friendly).

Up to Mono 1.2.6, you could place a dll.config file in the
~/.mono/assemblies/[App name] directory, which was a valid workaround for
this: your application could create the necessary dll.config file at
runtime, which would point to the correct library (environment or override).
Sadly this no longer works in Mono 1.9 (why?)
