Actually, I think Joseph was refering to embedding GUI elements, aka Qt# widgets into Kate via a
C# plugin.  AFAIK, he is looking to extend the Kate plugin API to allow programmers to build Qt#
plugins for Kate.  This would mean incorporating Qt# widgets (driven by mono) into the actual Kate
GUI.  Now, if Mono and Kate are running in different threads then how to take care of
synchronization?  Think of generating events in Qt# which would affect the the larger Kate GUI. 
I'm at a loss for how this might be accomplished...
