Do what COM did ? (wrap object contruction/operation in functions ?)

If only we could wrap C++ directly into PInvoke , it would be much
easier ... Also Cocoa being "non" portable wouldn't have the issues
with alignment or other issues .

If we can Dlopen stuff from Objective C , and you know what the parameters
are , I think that might be the solution afterall :-) .. 

But the question of how to wrap the event framework is entirely beyond me.
Maybe you should take a peek at Rhys's X11 wrappers for a similar 
effort on a differnt API :-)
