Make sure your obfuscator does not do "control-flow obfuscation",
because this is not supported in Mono.

Notice that we do not do any testing with obfuscated assemblies for any
of our programs, so you might run into problems if the obfuscated
assemblies are shipped, and you will have very few chances of getting
that fixed from us (it is open source, so you can still fix it if you
have to, but you will not be able to depend on us to address this issue
for you).

You could use mkbundle, but you would have to test whether your program
works fine as a "bundled" program, and again, it is not our top priority
to address bugs in that area, so you might have to fix some bugs or
limitations on your own.
