The GAC should be able to maintain multiple versions
of assemblies. 

For example, for pnet ..

bash$ ilgac --install --default My.dll 

installs it to the default cache . But otherwise
it will install it with the right version.

Which is essentially saying nothing about how it 
should work ? :) .

I think 1.2 is the right version for most of pnet's
.dlls since they already incorporate the Whidbey 
extensions to the library .

In consequence, I think the above problem will occur
when the code compiled on .NET 1.2 is run on mono
as well. So it is not a pnet specific problem is it ?.

Btw, ilgac was implemented sometime around August 
2003 ... to solve this very same problem of
maintaining multiple versions .

We will see how we can fix it .. but as of now ,
in mono you could try load_in_path() for 
System.Xml (like the hack that's there's in for 
corlib.dll renames).

Though , I cannot see pnet putting an invalid version
number for the 1.2 .dlls ..
