Actually, the goal is to merge this code with Winforms, but first the
prototype needs to work.

See the discussion recently on one of the forums about the proposed
source code split to allow two Winforms implementations to exist: one
based on the XplatUI* drivers, and one based on a MonoMac backend.
They would still share a lot of the common code that is not toolkit
dependent though.

At this point we are waiting for James to have something that is
beyond a proof of concept to start the actual split.

Yes, but it would be difficult to debug and test.
