Are we collecting the open questions about packaging mono apps anywhere?
http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Mono seems to be an
instruction manual for packaging mono rather than a lit of questions we
need to solve (and lists the _libdir hack as a solution a bit
prematurely, IMHO)

Another open question would be how this affects us:
http://www.mono-project.com/Assemblies_and_the_GAC#Libraries_with_Unstable_APIs

It's advocating using .dlls with unstable APIs the same way we normally
use static libraries (including a local copy with the application).  It
has all the usual features of a static library scheme but fails to
mention any security issues.  Should packages entering Fedora be checked
to make sure they *do not* follow this or are mono .dlls immune to the
security concerns with normal static libraries?

PS: This is moving into general packaging territory so I'm cross-posting
it to fedora-packaging.  Replies to fedora-packaging please.
