Right, I realized that the CAS implementation wasn't ready, but I was
just wondering where I should start looking.  Mono Embedding appears
to be the best option from what I've seen.  Of course, it would be
really nice if I could develop the plugin to work with the .net
framework as well as mono, but, it would probably end up being two
completely different code bases.
