It's important to point out that Mono != Moonlight. As far as I know,
Moonlight is largely non-managed code which doesn't have much to do
with the CLR. Moonlight is an execution engine just as the Mono
binary is. You run .Net programs via Mono on Linux like this:
> mono myapp.exe
Mono is a non-managed execution environment. You might think of your
browser doing something like this:
> moonlight mywebapp.dll
So it's the porting of the moonlight binary / plug-in from one
platform to the next that is necessary.
