[Mono-dev] Com Interop Status

I like using DynamicMethod because C# is easier to write/maintain. For component systems other than MS Com (XPCom for example), they have easier access to DynamicMethod/SRE for emitting methods.

As for making DynamicMethod internal for 1.1, that is an option. However, then only component systems in corlib could access it. Of course, I'll probably only get to MS Com (which does reside in corlib) anyway by the time 1.2 is released (if that).
