[Mono-dev] Mixed Mode Assemblies

When I raised this topic, I walked in knowing that any such solution to
providing mixed-mode assemblies will produce assemblies that are not
cross-platform compatible. That much is a given. My point was simply that
this is an irrelevant fact. The whole point of providing for mixed mode
assemblies is to drag native functionality into a .NET namespace. This
automatically ties such code to the the platform from which the native
functionality was acquired. So I wouldn't expect an assembly containing
calls to, say Windows Hook functions, to work on Linux or Mac OS. Instead,
I'm writing mixed mode code for a cross-platform compatible library or
application, I already know that the mixed mode parts are going to have to
be written custom for each target OS. Cross-platform compatibility of mixed
mode code is not a relevant issue where this feature is concerned.
