[Mono-devel-list] plans for a native AES wrapper.

     After last week's AES benchmarking, we've decided to write a  
managed->native wrapper around the openssl libcrypto library for the  
sake of performance. From my experience with embedded mono, it seems  
straightforward enough to write a RijndaelNative class that contains  
method declarations marked as internal calls that I will register at  
runtime. This will work fine for the cases where I'm embedding mono  
inside a native application, but I don't know enough about mono to  
know if I can use this same strategy for situations in which I'm not  
embedding mono. Is it possible to register internal calls at runtime  
when running mono like a normal, sane person? Will this be any faster  
than using p/Invoke?
