[Mono-list] Sql Server Compact on Mono

I have created a Windows Forms application for the .Net 2.0 framework. I've
tested the application using MoMa, and no errors were detected. The only
thing is that I'm using a Sql Server Compact database (I distribute the Sql
Server Compact dll files so the database runs in process). From my
understanding, the System.Data.SqlServerCe is however not implemented for
mono. Also, when running the MoMa test for the SqlServerCe.dll file, I get a
whole lot of P/Invoke errors. This makes the dll unsuitable for using with
linux / mac from what I understand.

Will the SqlServerCe namespace be implemented for mono in the near future?
>From my understanding the SqlClient namespace is already implemented. Would
it be hard to implement SqlServerCe for mono given that mono already has an
implementation for SqlClient?

Are there other options to make my application work with mono under mac /
linux? I would really like to keep using my Sql Server Compact database, but
switching namespaces won't really be a problem (Except if this would degrade
