CSGL ... C# wrappers to OpenGL (

There are 2 ways Java support OpenGL ... one by native (sic) emulation
which uses the java.awt.Graphics surface to draw as per the GL API .
This is not hardware based support and is great if you just need
slow 3d performance in a window ..

The hardware based system is JNI based with hooks to the system's GL

Hehe ... anybody seen csvorbis yet ? .. it is a Vorbis player in C# ..
(check mono's website..) . But more importantly someone from DotGNU 
has been thinking really hard about wrapping GStreamer and allow DotGNU
to support full streaming/playing capablity ... The more complex API 
of GStreamer would take long on a single person developer ... 

do you people just need a hack or a Complete Solution (TM) ? ..
