[Mono-list] exit on out of memory exception

I wish it were that simple.  I've already scanned the code base to try and
find all the places where we are handling exceptions, but it's a very large
code base with 3+ years of legacy code in it.  I cannot guarantee that I've
found every place where we might be swallowing that exception and have
modified it to handle it appropriately, and was hoping there was an easier
way to just cut my losses and restart the application.

When an out of memory exception gets thrown, our whole process is hosed.
I've been trying to get some profiling information to fix the issue, but it
happens only in production, rarely, and usually when nobody is looking so I
haven't made much headway on that yet.
