Well, it doesn't really matter who's creating the domains
and loading the assemblies. It's by far easier to implement
this in C# and then mono_runtime_invoke it from C++.

Of course, you can invoke everything from C++ but this will
likely triplicate the amount of code to be written.

Furthermore, the only safe way to create a domain in C++ is
mono_runtime_invoke-ing System.AppDomain.CreateDomain(), IIRC.
