I think I can answer some of your questions.  Yes NSString can be accessed
from MonoMac.  But most of the time you will just pass a string through the
bindings.  So a generic NSString with the string text is created and passed
through the binding.

A strongly-typed array.  In ObjcC you will see something like this:
NSArray* sortDescriptors;

Possible bindings are:
NSArray SortDescriptors;
NSObject[] SortDescriptors;

And the correct binding is:
NSSortDescriptor[] SortDescriptors;

A strongly-typed array.
