> Mono gmcs references System.Core.dll by default.
> Mono gmcs /noconfig avoids referencing System.Core.dll.
> However, ExtensionAttribute is in System.Core.dll, and due to current
> limitation
> of Mono gmcs, it needs to reference System.Core.dll in order to compile
> extension methods correctly.
> DLR does not use extension methods.
> IronRuby.dll uses extension methods, but none of assemblies IronRuby.dll
> references use extension methods.
> IronRuby.Libraries.dll uses extension methods, and references IronRuby.dll
> which uses extension methods. System.Core.dll is pulled in, classes are
> defined
> multiple times, FAIL.
