[MonoDevelop] S.W.F -> Gtk# Mappings

Honestly, You have two choices, wrap or convert.

We have been doing some of both in MonoDevelop. Personally I prefer
converting, but one of our developers prefers wrapping.

Its basically personal preference.

Certain simple SWF controls map near exact to Gtk# controls, like
Buttons, etc, but most other things are very different.

However, a lot of concepts stay the same, and it is pretty easy to hack
it together.

If people are interested, I would be willing to take a small SWF example
and hack it to Gtk# with some annotations, etc. But only if someone
thinks there would be a use.


PS - I'm a bit out of it, just woke up ;)
