[Mono-list] Mono and Windows CE

I'm working on a Windows CE contract that requires over-the-air updates 
of a small set of DLLs that are infrequently changed. When my app starts 
up, it queries a web service to see if there are any new updates and if 
so, requests them. After updating, the main thread of my app starts up, 
dynamically loading the DLLs. The process works fine.

My client is primarily a Linux production shop and would like to avoid 
any MS products in the production chain if they can. This gives rise to 
the question as to whether or not it is possible to compile these DLLs 
using the Mono compiler instead of VS 2008 - would those DLLs work on 
the WINCE device?

I've seen Q's and A's relating to compiling the Mono runtime for WINCE, 
but we really don't need to do that.

Thanks for any input.
