Again, the problem is not P/Invoke alone, but Wndproc method in controls
as well.

The P/Invoke issue is a bad one, because it is required for things where
there is no managed API (most third-party controls for .NET will use
P/Invoke).  So the Gtk#-based solution is a very partial one.

I can not stress this enough: A Gtk#-based implementation would *not* be
fully compatible, and people should be very very very aware that this
implementation *would require changes to their code* and would *not be a
full implementation*.
