I beg to differ -- HandleRef has been implemented for quite some time,
and was initially used in Mono.Unix.Native.FilePosition in revision
38204 (~2004, iirc).  I used HandleRef in it because my tests had shown
it to work, and this was *after* I had written that section of

In fact, I still have the program I used to test/validate HandleRef
support, and it's dated October 8, *2003*.  (I have *got* to clear out
my ~/tmp directory some year....)
