[Haskell-cafe] hs-dotnet with Mono?

A native-managed bridge for the clr while being cross platform is quite
possible but unfortunately the developers of hs-dotnet reference ole32 and
oleaut32 as extra libraries. This means that the code relies on the
com/ole/activex layer in windows which is what Microsoft's implementation of
the clr is built upon and their low level clr apis are written in. Mono
doesn't use this and afaik there isn't a com layer for nix (unless of course
you use wine but that may be overkill). The salsa project seems to have
similar bindings although it does say on it's wiki page "Supporting Mono
shouldn't be too much work though"
