Why would it be a showstopper? AOT is really only an optimization to
improve startup time and code sharing between processes (except on
JIT-blocking platforms such as the iPhone, where it's necessary for
Mono to work at all). The runtime is still needed for other VM
features: the GC, reflection, exception handling, I/O etc.

Maybe you're looking for something like mkbundle.
