[Mono-dev] asynchronous exceptions

Hello list.

Within the scope of my diploma thesis, I am going to create a (or extend an 
existing) programming language (+compiler) for the control of automated 
vehicles. Right now I am evaluating the use of mono as a runtime platform.

I am planning to have a language element, which ensures that a given condition 
stays fulfilled during the execution of block of code. If the condition is 
violated an exception should be risen. The condition is (probably) going to 
be checked/evaluated by another thread, who should inform the first one in 
case of violation of the condition.

This pattern resembles to the asynchronous exception used by the 
Thread.Abort() method being triggered by an external thread, catching the 
ThreadAbortException and canceling the abort afterwards.
I am wondering if there is a safe way to achieve this functionality with the 
crl/mono runtime.

Best regards,
Bastian Schmitz
