I think the current stance about COM support is:
we're waiting for someone that needs it and contributes the code:-)
I guess something that works, even if it's slow, is better than nothing.
If you have the skills and the time to contribute in this area, you're
welcome! Feel free to ask any questions about how best to integrate the
code into the mono runtime.
