People interested in something like this should take a look at /
source/trunk/objc-sharp that I just commited today. Its a preview
release of a genericized objc->.net bridge using mono embedding.
Check out the stuff in test/ specifically for some examples of what
it can do (treat objc classes as targets for events; translate
managed exceptions to native; act on managed objects with native
classes; all kinds of neat stuff).
Its MIT/X11 licensed and patches are welcome.
Additionally keep your eyes out for a new version of Cocoa# coming
soon; that has put the generator aside and hand bound and audited all
the currently implemented features. It will be more of an "organic"
direction for cocoa# making people add what they need (easy to add
based on the new glueless framework) and contribute it back; thus
giving us all (in theory) a fully audited base of controls to work with.
Any questions; feel free to contact me on list or directly; however I
may be out of the loop for a while as I'm moving this weekend.
