ddobrev <https://github.com/ddobrev> has been working on a C# binding for
Qt using the CppSharp technology for a few months now. You're right that
it's a pretty daunting task, C++ is really hard to bind to from C#.

Anyway, I'm quite hopeful for his project since he has some previous
experience on this area (he did the Qyoto C# bindings) and has progressed a
lot on the bindings. I know he also has plans to add some support for QML
once he finishes bindings for all the core Qt modules.
