You are doing it mostly right, except that the parser cannot parse
libwnck.  This is probably due to minor coding style problems for which
you can either patch the source of libwnck before you parse it, or add
support for it to the Gtk# parser.

A few minor things:
you may want to use the gnome2.2 version of libwnck
<api filename="wnck/wnck-api.raw"> (wnck should be a directory at
<library name="libwnck-1.so"> (and then add the minor version
to /etc/mono/config)
