This is exactly the situation Microsoft's managed C++ compiler is good
at dealing with. Of course the assemblies it produces don't work so well
on Mono -- maybe you need to lobby for /CLR extensions to gcc :).  I'm
curious though - if you have a codebase that size why bother with Mono?

No problem.  Feel free to ping me offline if you don't want to have a
protracted discussion on the Mono list...
