You have to realize first that embedding Mono won't give you
more `power' than the managed world would do.

I can understand the desire for code like this, although
it looks more like throwing the baby out with the bathwater
in a loop:

for (;;) {
	mono_jit_init ();
	do work
	mono_jit_cleanup ();


If I had to attack this problem I'd do it this way:

(1) How do I achieve these tasks using manged code?

- compiling C#
- creating a domain
- loading an assembly
- executing code from this assembly
- unloading a domain

This is pretty basic stuff for .NET hackers and it's runtime-
agnostic (it runs on both Mono and MS.NET).

The next step:

(2) Factor out a managed assembly which performs (1) and
exposes a simple API which can be easily invoked from the
unmanaged world using Mono's embedding API.
