pcsc-sharp and MCard-sharp both use p/invoke.

pcsc-sharp uses WinSCard.dll by default and Mono's dllmap mechanism to  
change this for non-Windows and OSX to use pcsc-lite library/framework.

MCard-sharp is currently hardcoded to use said MCChipdr.dll, and this  
can only be overridden by Mono's dllmap mechanism; for .NET Framework  
it needs to be changed in source code.

The helper library uses no additional p/invokes. I believe  
alternatively there'd be a COM-based solution for Windows but I wasn't  
aware of something cross-platform.
