All the AppKit and Foundation classes should be useable.

There are classes for all the Cocoa types. So there is an NSView
class, an NSResponder class, an NSString class, etc. However the
wrapper classes are written to use System.String instead of NSString
under the assumption that most strings are small and doing the
conversion won't be too costly. If this is not true it's trivial to
drop down to dynamic calls for those cases.

The library has no relation to Cocoa# so I doubt it.
