Only objects whose internal structure is identical in MS.NET and Mono
(i.e. they have the same private fields with the same names) are
interoperable. The reason is that remoting sends a full copy of the
object and if the receiver expects a different structure for a type it
will fail. Classes in System.Collections have been gradually modified to
match those in MS.NET. Other classes may fail.
