With this approach, I'd worry that if the user installed a newer
official version of Mono at a later time that our reference to the
version-specific mono executable would no-longer be valid.  Even if the
Mono installer doesn't remove older versions of the framework, the user
may choose to, thinking the old version was obsolete.

Referencing /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current/bin/mono
does make sense to me, though, if there are other potential packages
that could hijack the /usr/bin/mono symbolic link.
