Couldn't we just use conditional compilation in the wrapper-dependent
parts? A lot of #ifs (and a few #defines) might uglify the code a bit,
but IMO it would simplify things greatly. The wrapper-dependent parts
could be quickly and easily identified just by skimming the code for
#if-#endif blocks and we wouldn't have to maintain multiple copies of
mostly redundant code. Each file could have a maintainer for the general
code and maintainers for each wrapper, and so long as they stay in their
own areas we won't have to worry about things like a change in QT#
breaking GTK# support.

BTW, does mcs have conditional compilation yet? If not, are there any
plans to add it?
