[Mono-list] Call managed from unmanaged code?

Hello Kurt,
     You can achieve this in a few ways.

1. The easiest and most portable is to marshal a delegate into a function
pointer, and then pass that pointer into native code to call back onto.

2. If you are using the embedding API, you can register internal calls with
the runtime that you can call from C#.


Mono does have some support for COM Interop, but note that there is minimal
to no tool support for generating the wrapper interfaces and interop
