Yup.  Thanks again for all the info.

If mono implemented a c++/clr compiler then we could probably use the
same code everywhere (we'd have to build on all 3 platforms, but that's
no big deal).  As it stands we'll probably end up with 3 different
codebases -- c++ on Linux, c++/clr on Windows, and objective c++ on mac.

If I could make a suggestion, mono may wish to consider implementing a
c++/clr compiler for mono 2.  The new c++/clr in whidbey is by far the
most attractive new feature from my company's point of view.  I believe
there are other companies with similar points of view.

It is *very* natural and easy to start extending a large existing c++
codebase with .net features using c++/clr in whidbey.  I imagine many
potential adopters have similar circumstances.
