The challenge with building these libraries is that we are going to
need to create a different facade for the Mono runtime.

QuickLook plugins are libraries, so we need to bootstrap the Mono
process in a different way, instead of the current setup in which we
merely call the "mono" command.   So we would need to embed Mono, and
hook it up there to load an assembly.

So the first step is for someone to build this bridge, using Mono's
embedding API.   Once we have the bridge built, we could build a
template to include in MonoDevelop to make it easier to ship.
