I'm not sure what the fuss is about, mozilla and firefox and
openoffice all do this sort of thing already. We aren't setting in
precedences with wrapper script usage here.  If you have just noticed
this with the mono apps, then clearly this isn't such a big deal your
system has been using this sort of construction for awhile now and you
have been blissfully ignorant of it.
