[IronPython] Problem with Creating Executable using SharpDevelop

Installing IP into the GAC is something apparently not much discussed in
polite company (e.g. AFAICT not at all in "IP in Action" or "IP URLs".)

For us .net ignorami:
* What is the downside to installing IP into the GAC? Is it that different
apps will be dependent on different IP versions so better just to keep the
IP DLLs together with each app?
* Is installing into GAC still done by invoking gacutil twice as described
here:?

Thanks.
