[Mono-osx] #define and Operating System Specific Code

Following on from my previous question are there any suggestions on how
to write cross-platform code that uses threads? Currently I have:

Thread SerialThread = new Thread(new ThreadStart(SerialHandler));

private void SerialHandler()
  NSAutoreleasePool Pool = new NSAutoreleasePool();
  Pool = null;

For Windows and Linux I want to omit the autorelease pool code. I'm sure
there must be a clever way that doesn't involve #if/#endif.

thanks, Andy
