I am going to file an accompanying bug about libgdiplus (and dll hell with libJPEG - where things get confusing between mono's private libjpeg and the libjpeg provided by core.graphics), but is there any plan of actually replacing the sys.drawing implementation in the official mono build from the libgdiplus version to the coregraphics version?

I got the vague idea that Xamarin.Mac's mono (how different is that from the vanilla binary download of mono MDK from
Xamarin) contains the coregraphics version of sys.drawing?
