Hi Pyroman

Yes, it is possible.

I'm myself embedding bonobo componets written in gtk-sharp (C#) into my
C program. It is where possible to return Gtk.Widget, I don't do that
myself, but im passing a Gtk.Container to the C# code and the adding
stuff to that.

Just do this in the C program:

	domain =3D mono_jit_init (PACKAGE);
	mono_config_parse ("/etc/mono/machine.config");
	mono_config_parse ("/etc/mono/config");
	mono_thread_attach (domain);

and then:

	MonoDomain 	 	 		*domain;
	MonoAssembly 	 		*assembly;=09
	MonoClass				*class;
	MonoImage				*image;
	MonoMethod	 	*method;
	MonoObject 		*object;
	MonoMethodDesc 	*desc;
	gpointer 		 args[1];
	GtkWidget	*widget;

	domain =3D mono_domain_get ();
	assembly =3D mono_domain_assembly_open (domain, "test.dll");
	image =3D mono_assembly_get_image (assembly);
	class =3D mono_class_from_name (image, "TestApp", "Test");
	desc =3D mono_method_desc_new ("TestApp.Test:Init", TRUE);
	method =3D mono_method_desc_search_in_class (desc, class);
	mono_method_desc_free (desc);
	object =3D mono_object_new (domain, class);
	mono_runtime_object_init (object);
	args[0] =3D &widget;
	mono_runtime_invoke (method, object, args, NULL);


namespace TestApp
	class Test
		public void Init (IntPtr raw)

This is just a rough paste, but should work somewhat.
