[Mono-dev] [PATCH] EventLog implementation

Hi Kornél and Atsushi,

I've attached a working patch for the new EventLog implementation, along
with a set of unit tests (that pass on Mono and .NET).

Right now, reading of event log entries is not implemented for the win32
implementation (Kornél, happen to volunteer for this ?).

It's probably not perfect yet, but it should give us a good start.
