The answer is yes, but you'll likely have to figure this out on your
own.  Also, note that if I found some app that did the same thing, and
did not make changes to the Mono runtime to warrant it, I would
probably not use it.  If you are distributing an unmodified version of
mono alongside your app then you are wasting disk space on your target
machines.  The mono framework is designed to be shared by multiple
applications without problems, so there is generally no need to do
