[Mono-osx] Ambiguity on containment of the Mono framework

I am about to install the Mono Framework on Mac OSX 10.6.8.  Because I am wary of how installing a program can affect other programs, I find the following statements from the Read Me (in the installation process) to be ambiguous concerning the containment of the Mono framework:

This README is for Mono.framework 2.10.5_0.

This is the Mono Runtime and Development Platform (http://www.mono-project.com/).

This package installs Mono and all of its dependencies inside of /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework.  

A simple uninstallMono.sh script is included in the disk image.  This is shell script that must be run as root, and it will remove the Mono.framework and the links in /usr/bin.

What gets installed to /usr/bin if Mono and all of its dependencies are installed inside of /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework?
