right. But, with S.W.F and the Drawing API you can do, for example a round
button on windows.
Or image the menus of SharpDevelop/VS.net. (Bad example, as the MagicLib
p/invokes, but you get the idea)
How should these things be done?

Have a look at the /mcs/class System.Windows.Forms/Gtk directory.
It seems like a demo app with a label and a button has been done.

I have no time testing it on my Linux box, but ifyou or someone could build
it and do a screenshot it would be cool.
