Is this a method to get single excecutable?

If...
We can get through reflection the code of everything in .net
Its posible to pre-compile the CIL code to a target machine.

Then...
A program could get all the related CIL code for a project and build a
single file, fixing the references.
This or other program can then compile it to a target machine, producing a
single exe, with no depencies to framework.

?

I have been given this link, wich I think you may find usefull:

http://www.xenocode.com/en/Product-Features.aspx

New! .NET Framework embedding: XenoCode 2005 allows the .NET Framework
libraries to be embedded into the output assembly, dramatically reducing the
complexity of application testing, deployment, and support. XenoCode 2005
automatically identifies and statically binds a minimal set of Framework
dependencies, reducing overall deployment size and eliminating dynamic link
costs.

So, would this mean that we could write a simple "Hello, World" program with
no depencies?... Looks promising to me.
