This is called ABI compatibility, which is for CLI in most cases also
the API compatibility.
For Debian packaging we wrote a wrapper around the mono tools
(mono-api-info.exe) that does exactly this :) telling us if the DLLs are
compatible or not, nothing more.
You can grab the wrapper script from here:
