What you can do with mono is to load different applications in their own
application domain: this is a feature of the CLR that allows sandboxing
applications inside a single process space. This is usualy exploited to
compartmentalize different parts of the same app, but it can also be
effectively used to reduce the startup and memory overhead.
Using different appdomains the runtime representation of types and
methods is shared across applications.
