1) MD does not depend on moonlight at all, any more than bash depends on smcs.
2) It isn't hard to remove the extension anyway, though removing all
references to the 2.1 runtime would be more difficult.
3) You should not be shipping 1.9 as stable packages. Preview packages are okay.
4) I'm not going to add a configure script option, since it's not a
hard dependency.
5) In future please cross-post MD questions to the MD list. I don't
appreciate having to join yet another list just so that I can answer a
6) Kneejerk reactions like this help nobody. Please investigate issues
like this properly before making huge assumptions.
