[Mono-ue] Mono for Unreal and .net Core

Mono is already using a fair bit of code from .NET Core. It's too early to
say exactly what the long term will be but we'll definitely be
sharing/converging more over time.

Today, Mono is easier to embed (especially the low level stuff we're doing)
and supports a number of gaming platforms that .NET Core does not such as
iOS/tvOS, Android, and PS4. Mono also has a GC Bridge (developed for
Android) that allows two GCs to work together, which will be very useful
for the UE integration.
