It would be great if you could re-use the ORBit2 infrastructure; for
a) Code re-use, while marshalling is fairly trivial, there is a
great wealth of problems that you can hit, particularly:
* Interoperability - lots of subtlties here
* Profile management - fun stuff here too
* Socket communications - similarly
* Security ... etc.
b) In-proc ABI, ORBit2 has an ABI that would let C bindings for
Mono objects not go through a complex Marshal to a socket,
de-marshal from a socket [ even in-proc ] process, but do
direct cross language calls, between eg. Guile, Python,
My main concern is a) really, code-reuse; this is rather more important
to my mind than a 'pure' Mono impl.
