Sure, a fakedotnet35 verb seems like a fine thing for the short term, if it
makes an app happy.  Or maybe it should be added to the mono26 verb.

Ideally Wine would load mono and set those variables automatically, but it
might be a while before somebody has the time to make it all work
smoothly like that.
