Ah, very interesting. I assume this increases the ref count which
assures that the object won't get collected until after the native code
returns. Is that right?
Also, to pass the person struct IntPtr from C# to C, which is
recommended; pass it as a parameter, or use mono_runtime_invoke to pull
it out of the property? I would assume that passing it as a parameter is
quicker since it saves a function call.
Thanks for your help, it's quite an eye opener.
