[Mono-dev] Iterating the classes of a mono image using the embedding API

Hi Argiris,

You can make calls in the managed classes for reflection or from Mono.Cecil.
But see that you need to repeat it for all managed libraries, already
loaded, or that you are interested and so you load, as even a
compacted image of Mono contains many independent libraries just
attached in a single file, and with some info to locate them in this

AFAIK in the embedding API in pure C, you'll probably have only a list
of classes already loaded and/or jitted , not of all that the ones the
program may be able to use.
