Thanks guys.

I have checked out monobj.net but haven't worked with it yet.  I will
also check out mcocoa/mobj.  That sounds promising as well.

Another question,
If cocoa-sharp is unmaintained and people, like me, are being directed
away from cocoa-sharp to other projects, why is it still included with
the mono releases?  Unless there are some internals that still depend
on it, cocoa-sharp seems to be just added fat.
