It is already possible to use the embedding API to get the same result
without using any private API, of course.
Anyway, we can certainly add an helper method, but it should be more

MonoString *mono_object_to_string (MonoObject *obj, MonoObject **exc);

Note that it works for any object and that it allows the user to
handle exceptions thrown from the implict method invocation.
The result can be used as is or mono_string_to_utf8 () can be called on
