+Summary: Mono does not support custom marshalers
+Description of Problem:
+Although the Mono's class library supports the ICustomMarshaler interface, the
+infrastructure to call a custom marshaler is missing.
+The documentation on custom marshalers on MSDN and in the Rotor docs is a little
+hard to understand without seeing any examples, so I am attaching 3 source files to
+illustrate the concept: one C file and two C# files. One of the source files
+demonstrates a managed-to-native marshaler, and the other demonstrates a
+native-to-managed. It is possible to implement both directions with a single class,
+but to demonstrate the technique, I elected to separate them.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+How often does this happen?
