> What would be the top feature you would like to see in Mono?
  What I would like to see, is a nice way of interoping from a native C++ program into Mono.
  In the microsoft world, this is solved by using C++/CLI which allows the developer to create mixed-mode assemblies.
  From what I understand, the way to solve this in the mono world is to pass the c++ code a delegate (function pointer).  It works, but it requires a lot more modifications to the source code for me to do this.   
  In the mono world, perhaps a solution would be a native-code API that allows streamlined access to managed functions.      
  If you mono devs have some interest in pursuing this 'wish' please let me know and I can supply you with a detailed scenario.
  Disclaimer:  I have not yet used mono, as the issue I am about to outline is currently a roadblock for my project.  (Though I have plans for the future obviously, or i would not be subscribed to this mailing list)
  Thank you very much,
