The problem today with CSharp and attach is that it is not integrated  
with the main loop of an application, so it is inherently unsafe.

For Gtk# based applications, since we know that there is a main loop,  
we plug naturally into the main loop, so it is not an issue, but with  
server applications it is anyone's guess what kind of event processing  

In those cases, it would be best if the specific server application  
provides an explicit interface to get C# source and evaluate it.
