[Mono-list] Help in dealing with Mono/.NET PInvoke issue

The user controls in itself should not have any further dependencies (and if
they do, I will have to change them).

My objective is to have a VS GUI host container just like what the the
VSShell for Apps does (which is what the WinFormsUI DockPanelSuite (hosted
at http://dockpanelsuite.sourceforge.net) gave me).

Is VSShell compatible with Mono in OSx?

Since I'm going through a GUI design of the main O2Platform interface, it
looks like the best solution is to start with a normal .NET MDI environment
and evolve it from there (I'll post here an update when the new GUI is
working on Mono & OSx)
