I don't know about the state of Mono.Addins, or how it's going to evolve, but
MEF has been released under an open source license by Microsoft, meaning the
Mono team didn't have to reimplement it and simply reused these sources. So
the MEF compatibility level between Mono and .NET should be great.
I would guess MEF is more stable / future proof than Mono.Addins. I haven't
used either, though.
