The code in question may have to be rewritten.

That's in the mono-2017-06 branch, maybe we should put that in master too.

Looks safe enough. I'm fine with an early cherry pick if people want, though just telling people to install a known-good system mono is more likely to locally produce good results.

Let's put it (and similar stuff) into master and keep the `mono-2017-06` as minimal as possible (e.g. stuff that can't work with 2017-04).

Landed in master.
