Yes, I was working on COM Interop a little while ago. My schedule got
busy for a little bit, but now I hope to finish the work. This will
initially apply only to MS COM on Windows. However, as COM and XPCOM are
very similar I think XPCOM Interop could be done with a little bit of
additional work. 

Look for updates in the coming weeks.

As you mention, Microsoft's solution is C++/CLI.  There isn't likely to
be C++/CLI support for Mono any time soon.

However, Microsoft has another solution for C++/managed code
integration: COM Interop - the C++ code uses managed code as if they
were COM objects.

Furthermore, Jonathan Chambers has been working on COM Interop support
for Mono, with the idea of expanding it for Mozilla XPCOM integration
and other object systems.

You might be able to (1) help him, and (2) make use of this
infrastructure to permit better C++ integration.
