We should change that, and then introduce a "LowLevelSetValueForKey" if we
need, like we do in NSDictionary for those that want to pass handles

I totally agree with you on the C# 3 features.  One of the questions that I

The good news is that NSDictionary implements IDictionary, so we can always
treat NSDictionary in a .NET way.

The problem is that it comes with some overhead, so it might be a good idea
to write NSDictionary->Dictionary and back helper methods.
