I was just wondering what is the degree of support for "unsafe" code in 

I had a few modules with unsafe code compiled in VS 2003 and they seem 
to run okay,
but I have not found much about whether this apparent support for 
"unsafe" code is 100% complete,
or mostly working etc?

My primary interest is using pointers to read/modify data directly in 
heap using "fixed" command
to make sure GC won't move data. My experience shows that "unsafe" codes 
has some very nice performance
gains that are very important for my application, should I be wary of 
using that code in Mono?
