Well, yes and no.  If you don't mind the code being in different DLLs,
you should be able to mix different languages without needing round-tripping.
But if you want to produce a single executable, then yes, that is where
round-tripping comes in.  In particular, the closest thing MS has to a
linker is running ildasm on several files, concatenating the output,
and then running ilasm.  Obviously this only works if round-tripping is
