Great, glad to hear I made the right choices in those type changes.  Thanks
for the update.

I was hoping for a little more feedback on the x86 codegen changes,
particularly from anyone with expertise in the code generation aspects of
mono.  There's no rush on this, but it would be nice to have our changes
incorporated in the mono tree, particularly so external developers could
make use of this, and any future patches can hopefully be a bit smaller.
