But doesn't installing Mono with winetricks just use a DLL from the
Windows *Mono* install, not a DLL from the actual Windows system
libraries? I think it's "mono-2.0.dll" or something of that nature. Or
does the EULA say that nothing compiled as a DLL can be used on an OS
other than Windows or something? Maybe the DLL I mentioned above links
to a Window system DLL somehow?
