Please read:


"The class will need to change the Core Animation class used as the UIView
class’s layer to CATiledLayer and draw using the Core Animation
drawLayer:inContext: method."

I want to implement that example snippet. I have succeeded by implementing my
own CGContext and doing my own PInvokes. However, I would *much* prefer to use
MT's CGContext because I stink at interop and keep the parallel class is silly
given that CGContext already has a perfectly good constructor.

Layers aren't typically changed using inheritance. Instead, one assigns a
delegate and that delegate must respond to the drawLayer:inContext:

Because UIView does not contain that selector you do not provide a virtual
version of it. I have to implement it using [Selector(...)] magic.

In this case, I use a CATiledLayer as the layer class of my UIView. I do *not*
inherit from CATiledLayer. I do my drawing in drawLayer:inContext:
