[Mono-list] AOT viable option for deployment

I would like to know how viable an option AOT (full) is for deploying a command line program (or possibly a service) on Linux.  I'm re-writing an in-house app and need to determine the best platform.  I've some existing C# and Python code.  I don't believe it'll be an option to deploy Mono on most of the systems.  Also, I'm not keen on playing Python version hell...RHEL 5 and 6 will be very old.

So, I thought I'd check how viable an option it is to AOT compile.  I've read http://www.mono-project.com/AOT, but recognize that sometimes there may be information out of date on the wiki.  It sounds quite interesting.  Will the binaries be huge?  Will there be a performance hit?  I see generics and dynamic code might be problematic, but I could probably do without if needed.

What else?
