Description of Problem:
The windows created by Windows.Forms appear pixelated on Retina Display

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. With a Retina Display MacBook
2. Open any Winforms application.

Actual Results:
Pixelated windows, and pixelated controls.

Expected Results:
I don't expect Winform-painted controls to be Retina. But the window border is
drawn and textured by OS X's WindowServer. Making it high resolution is a
simple change, and easily fixable. Other toolkits that paint their own widgets
(like Qt) have adjusted to this.

How often does this happen? 
For every Windows Form, every time. I've tested on OS X 10.7 and 10.8.

Additional Information:
Please fix, this causes well-designed Winforms applications to appear pixelated
and alien.
