What time-frame are you looking for? :-)

XPCOM is, for most intents and purposes, Microsoft COM (with "ns"
prefixed to the interface names, and some names changed; for example,
IUnknown --> nsISupports, but they have the same methods & semantics).

Right now, Mono doesn't support COM.  It *may* do so in the future, if
someone contributes support.

If Mono isn't a requirement for you, you could probably write XPCOM
components in C# under .NET.  That would probably be a good idea,
anyway, just to get an idea of the complexities involved.
