I understand the format of the bytecode is different, but might there be
differences in function signatures in the System.foo assemblies if mono

Also, doesn't the mono compiler and runtime  have a different GAC. Wouldn't
compiling against the mono compiler ensure that all the methods in the
standard assemblies exist in the mono version?
